An increasing number of your customers are likely considering whether cloud solutions are right for their businesses. It’s quite natural that the more your customers learn about cloud computing, the more questions they have: Private or public? Will information be secure? Should our entire data center be in the cloud?
Fixed Revenue. In reality, the on-site data center isn’t going anywhere, but that business isn’t going to generate sustainable annuitized revenue for you like a subscription-based cloud solution will. It is your ability to master and sell repeatable services that will increase your profitability.
Industry-leading Technologies. Microsoft is unmatched in offering virtualization and data center management tools to help you make the sale. Microsoft System Center 2012, our cloud and datacenter management solution, provides a common toolset to manage virtual and private and public cloud applications and services. An integral Windows Server component, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V provides a foundational virtualization platform that enables customers to leverage cost savings while transitioning core virtualization scenarios – including dynamic data centers—to the cloud.
Customer Success. The need for streamlined cloud delivery is pervasive and you may serve industries that have demonstrated great need and documented high ROI. For the financial services and medical industries, private cloud supplies the speed and security these businesses demand to ensure relevance and reputation. For example, the combined power of Hyper-V’s security features and System Center Virtual Machine Manager is trusted by financial firm HSBC, all in a secure IT environment.
