Good news for cloud/Azure

#1MrImpatient35Posted 9/10/2013 11:25:20 AM

Microsoft is accelerating a global expansion of its data center infrastructure to support growth in its Azure cloud services and Xbox Live gaming service. At a time when many cloud builders are debating whether to build or buy their data center space, Microsoft is doing both.

At a time when Microsoft is being attacked from every direction for prisim and other security blunders and people are pulling out of cloud services. Microsoft is expanding.

Sorry.. off topic, but this just reminded me of it.

The whole keymaster/gatekeeper thing of ghostbusters was really dirty when you think about it, I had just never noticed it when I was a kid seeing it in the 80s

More proof that Microsoft is serious with this cloud business, unlike Sony.

There is no console war, there is no PS4 or Xbox 1, only Zuul.

That's cool.

I'm posting, so people can see this. Usually, anything that is good for Xbox is ignored, so I'll just keep bumping this topic.

Can't wait. Going to be really interesting if "every" or "most" Xbox Multiplayer games have dedicated servers or not.

Can't wait for it.

This is cool, I would like to see what MS can do with their servers.
