Microsoft is announcing today a new organization within the Server & Tools Business (STB) that combines the Windows Azure group with the Windows Server & Solutions group. This new organization is called the Server & Cloud Division.
This is an exciting time for Windows Azure with the recent launch of the Windows Azure platform at Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference (PDC). The new organization presents a great opportunity for us to deliver more value to our customers and signifies that we’ve moved beyond an advanced development project to an important and growing business for Microsoft.
This move better aligns our resources with our strategy – creating a single organization focused on delivering solutions for customers that span on-premises data centers and the cloud.
As our new teammates stated on their blog today, SCD comprises the following:
As SCD, together with our colleagues in Windows Server, we’ll ensure that customers get the full benefit of Microsoft offerings that span Microsoft’s public cloud, on-premises solutions, private clouds, and clouds that our partners host.
The Windows Azure team is excited to be joining the Server & Tools Business and working together with the Windows Server team to deliver our customers the best of software + services.
