While most of us haven’t moved to a cloud computing operating system just yet, Microsoft has just made its cloud-based operating system, Windows Azure, available in India. In terms of dollars and cents, a cloud-based operating system hosted on Microsoft’s data centers will be available for $0.12 per hour, while storage on Azure will cost enterprises $0.15/GB on a monthly basis.
Microsoft already claims to have over 3,000 applications developed from India that are currently hosted on the cloud platform, which should give it a good kick start. Based on figures from Microsoft, it’s said that the Windows Azure Platform can reduce the Total Cost of Operations by up to 30-40% over a three-year period. Are you looking to move your operating system to the cloud, or are you happy with things are they currently are?
