Microsoft Teams With PC Makers for Azure Cloud Services

Microsoft has announced Azure cloud-computing pacts with tech giants such as Dell, HP, Fujitsu and eBay. Some companies, government agencies and others have shied away from putting programs and data "in the cloud" because of security concerns. Having a company such as Dell or HP operate the cloud could help ease their worries.

Microsoft Corp. is teaming up with computer makers to try to make its Windows Azure cloud computing system attractive to government and big corporate customers.

In recent years, companies have started to use technology called virtualization Relevant Products/Services, which can let one physical server computer act as several. That cuts costs for hardware Relevant Products/Services, energy use and the labor needed to oversee large data Relevant Products/Services centers.

Cloud computing systems build on that trend. Instead of having to own and operate all those servers, companies can choose to outsource data center management Relevant Products/Services. The companies can store data and give employees access to software over the Internet. And these systems can automatically ramp up or scale down the computing resources they devote to any one program, depending on demand.
