Microsoft on Monday announced several new cloud products and services. The company said eighty percent of the Fortune 500 companies use their cloud and around 10,000 customers are added a week to the platform named Azure. Other leading data analysis solutions providers are also on the platform.
In the last financial year the revenue of its cloud offerings raised 2X time, said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise division.
Next week Microsoft plans making its Azure available generally in the Australian region. As of now it is available in 19 other regions across the world.
So far Azure has helped the company to become No. 2 in the cloud segment. Amazon.com tops it.
The successful service of Microsoft is its Office 365 subscription.
A research firm says the market size for public cloud IaaS computing across the world may reach to $10.8 billion by this year-end.
