What is the Cloud OS?

At the highest level, the Cloud OS does what a traditional operating system does – manage applications and hardware – but at the scope and scale of cloud computing. The foundations of the Cloud OS are Windows Server and Windows Azure, complemented by the full breadth of our technology solutions, such as SQL Server, System Center and Visual Studio. Together, these technologies provide one consistent platform for infrastructure, apps and data that can span your datacenter, service provider datacenters, and the Microsoft public cloud.
Key to this consistent platform is a set of common technologies and capabilities that extend across those three datacenters.

 + Flexible development allows your organization’s developers to use their choice of tools, languages – Microsoft or open source – and open standards to quickly build apps, connect them with other apps and data, and then deploy on premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid model. Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server enable application lifecycle management, from the idea to deployment of an app.

 + Unified management with System Center and Windows Intune gives your administrators a single pane of glass to manage applications, systems and devices across private, hosted and public clouds.

 + Active Directory and Windows Azure AD provide a powerful base for single identity across clouds to securely extend applications to people and their devices.

 + Integrated and portable virtualization, built into Windows Server, allows your team to virtualize not just servers, but also the network, storage and applications across clouds.

 + Last but not least, a complete data platform powered by SQL allows you to manage petabytes of data, power mission critical applications and give businesspeople BI solutions with a range of tools – Excel all the way up to Hadoop.

So, what does the Cloud OS mean to IT organizations?

It means your organization can shift to more efficiently managing datacenter resources as a whole, including networking, storage and compute. You will be able to deliver powerful apps that boost employee productivity and delight your customers much, much faster across private, hybrid and public clouds. Further, it means you can manage data, both big and small, to extract the story it has to tell for your business. And you will be able to give employees personalized experiences with apps and data on virtually any device, while maintaining security and compliance.

Send Bulk SMS Free

Hi everybody, Greetings for the day!
Here I come with the Bulk SMS Sender absolutely free.
All you have to do is create an account on way2sms.com which most of you already have though as I think. You’re just required to put your username and password and contact nos. with the message to forward them all in one go. Actually it came to be my requirement on various celebrations or holidays when we wish to send the same message to all our loved ones in one shot without spending a single penny. Most of us go with any online free sms provider where we need to fill every contact send message on by one. Give this application a try and you’ll be relaxed. You may encounter Server error at peak hours. Don’t forget to separate the contact nos with a semi-colon.
I discovered a more efficient way of doing this for me and I’m sharing this to the world with intention to help others having same problems as I explained. And finally Yes, your credentials are completely secured and not being stored anywhere…Cheers !!
