Nadella On Azure Progress
Organizations in every industry continue to choose our cloud to align their IT investments with demand. We are seeing larger and longer-term commitments and won a record number of $100 million-plus and $1 billion-plus deals this quarter.
We have more data center regions than any other provider, and we will launch 10 regions over the next year.
Our new Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty helps public sector customers meet urgent compliance, security and privacy requirements. With Azure Arc, we are meeting customers where they are, enabling companies like GM [General Motors] ... UBS and Juniper to run applications across on-prem, edge and multi-cloud environments.
We’re seeing more customers move their mission-critical workloads to Azure. American Airlines, for example, chose our cloud to run its key operational workloads, including its data warehouse. And Telstra [an Australian telecommunications company] will move its internal IT workloads to Azure.
And we are the platform of choice for SAP apps on the cloud. Leaders in every industry including Kraft Heinz, Fujitsu and Unilever have migrated ERP workloads to Azure. Just last week, we announced a new service to accelerate adoption of Oracle workloads on Azure. We’re the only public cloud with simplified direct access to Oracle databases running in the Oracle Cloud.
