‘It’s up to 80 percent less expensive to run Windows Server VMs (virtual machines) on Azure and SQL Server VMs on Azure than it is with our main competitor,’ Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says.
Beating Competitors On Cost
It all comes down to how we can help you use the Microsoft Cloud to help your customers overcome today’s challenges and emerge stronger. No other cloud offers our breadth or depth. No other cloud offers, not just best-in-class products, but best-in-suite solutions across the entire tech stack.
It starts at the infrastructure layer. Leaders in every industry are accelerating their migration to the cloud.
And it’s not just lift and shift – 95 percent of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms by 2025. IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) are coming together, and the cloud is foundational to how organizations will be competitive going forward.
Every customer I speak with is clear eyed about aligning their IT investments to scale with demand, and moving to the cloud allows them to just do that, converting their spending from CapEx (capital expenditures) to OpEx (operational expenditures).
This creates an opportunity for all of you to help organizations by providing your expertise. It’s all about helping customers drive operational efficiency, deliver faster time to value and reduce costs.
You can measure success by how much compute you’re using and how efficiently you’re using it. I can’t say this enough – it’s all about doing more with less. Across our offerings, we offer the best value at every stage of the cloud migration.
To just share two examples, it’s up to 80 percent less expensive to run Windows Server VMs (virtual machines) on Azure and SQL Server VMs on Azure than it is with our main competitor.
It’s not just about costs. We offer unique capabilities to simplify VM management and SQL Server compatibility to ease your move and are significantly investing in migration and modernization programs to help customers move forward with confidence.
