Overview of Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure
Pratibha Sood joins Sarah Lean to discuss the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure-including its key components, business value, and how you can get started.
Azure High-Performance Computing at Supercomputing 2020
Azure’s market-leading vision for HPC and AI is based on a core of genuine and recognized HPC expertise, using proven HPC technology and design principles, enhanced with the best features of the cloud. The result is a capability that delivers performance, scale, and value unlike any other cloud. This means applications scaling 12 times higher than other public clouds. It means higher application performance per node. It means powering AI workloads for one customer with a supercomputer fit to be among the top five in the world. And it means delivering massive compute power into the hands of medical researchers over a weekend to prove out life-saving innovations in the fight against COVID-19.
Microsoft Unlocks the Full Potential of the Smart Building Ecosystem
Last year, we highlighted how Microsoft was accelerating smart building solutions with investments in cloud, AI, and IoT. Since then we have continued our momentum, maturing our Intelligent Cloud and Intelligent Edge capabilities and partner ecosystem to solve complex scenarios and integrate previously disparate silos. This year, we are excited to showcase how, together with some of the world’s largest real estate owners and managers, Microsoft is empowering industry-leading smart buildings developed upon a thriving ecosystem of solution developers, device manufacturers, systems integrators, and service providers.
