Microsoft Plows New Server Farm Ground
How serious is Microsoft about the cloud? Besides building new cloud infrastructure
software and retooling all its apps for remote computing, Microsoft is pouring
huge bucks into its datacenters
, to the tune of 10,000 new servers every
Microsoft has an interesting new approach to building datacenters with efficiencies
that remind me of state-of-the-art supplies like Wal-Mart has. Microsoft's approach
is all modular and snap-in, and the center is architected to deliver Just in
Time capacity (the same way a good supply chain delivers products Just in Time).
