Microsoft launches global consortium of cloud service providers

Microsoft has launched the Cloud OS Network, a global consortium of more than 25 cloud service providers delivering services built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform.

The network will provide customers with a consistent Microsoft cloud platform, which spans data centres, service providers clouds, Windows Server with Hyper-V, System Center and the Windows Azure Pack.

“This network of leading service providers will help our customers create data centres without boundaries for apps, data and device management,” said Takeshi Numoto, Microsoft corporate vice president of Cloud & Enterprise Marketing. “That translates into greater diversity of solutions, more flexibility and lower operational costs for customers, allowing them to focus on their core business rather than managing data centres.”

The Cloud OS network enables organisations to meet their specific IT requirements by deploying hybrid solutions on the Microsoft Cloud Platform – either in their data centre, in Windows Azure or through the network of service providers.

Customers also benefit tailored, fully managed services within their local market, as well as technical consistency across environments, which allows them to improve employee productivity and lower operational costs.

By joining Microsoft in the Cloud OS Network, leading cloud service providers can quickly and cost-effectively develop new services, attract customers and increase revenues.

Organisations within the Cloud OS Network cover more than 90 active markets around the world and include: Alog, Aruba, Capgemini, Capita IT Services, CGI, CSC, Dimension Data, DorukNet, Fujitsu Finland, Fujitsu, iWeb, Lenovo, NTTX, Outsourcery,, Revera, SingTel, Sogeti, TeleComputing, Tieto, Triple C Cloud Computing, T-Systems, VTC Digilink and Wortmann.
