Microsoft's vision for this sort of computing fabric starts with the Azure cloud platform, which now has 54 data center regions (and recently expanded to its first underwater data center). "We are very, very excited about [questioning] the conventional wisdom of what is a data center," he said. "Of course, computing needs will go far beyond the data center. Essentially, wherever there is data, compute will migrate to data. And so we are going and taking Azure to Azure Stack, to Azure IoT Edge, to Azure Sphere. This is that one ubiquitous, distributed computing fabric. One programming model that is event-driven, serverless, so you can write an application that truly works across all of this."

Having all of these pieces, Nadella said, "I believe is the biggest unique thing that this ecosystem has as the world gets embedded with computing. Every use case out there is going to be powered by something like this."

The Azure Stack hybrid cloud platform has seen "incredible customer demand" since its debut in July 2017, Nadella said during a quarterly earnings call in January. Meanwhile, Azure Sphere -- a solution for securing the billions of microcontroller unit (MCU) devices in existence, which Microsoft unveiled in April -- is already "being used across a lot of very different customers," Nadella said during his keynote.
