Cloud products, solutions, and services from Microsoft are already used by many companies for their IT environment. The cloud is based on hardware and software that is operated by Microsoft and its licensed partners in large data processing centers. Via a web interface, cloud users have a wide range of options available, which allow them to quickly and easily set up entire IT infrastructures. Microsoft offers flexible deployment models that cover individual requirements. The options range from IaaS Clouds (Infrastructure as a Service), in which the user only uses the hardware infrastructure provided by Microsoft, to SaaS Clouds (Software as a Service), which provide the company’s entire IT system, including software and maintenance. Regardless of which solution model meets your specific needs: Microsoft cloud solutions help you to reduce investment costs, to provide your employees with modern work equipment, and to communicate with partners and customers in entirely new ways.
