cloud: Azure + HP E

Its public cloud soon gone, HP aligns with Microsoft Azure | PCWorld

"Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has partnered with Microsoft to offer its Azure cloud services to customers, filling a gap when HPE closes its own public cloud early next year.

Microsoft will be a "preferred" public cloud partner to HPE, and HPE will become a "preferred provider" of Microsoft Azure services, CEO Meg Whitman"

It's no surprise to see HPE cut its first cloud deal with Microsoft rather than Amazon or Google. The companies work closely in servers and PCs, and they're both trying to sell customers a mix of on-premises and cloud products.

"Microsoft shares our view of a hybrid IT approach for enterprises," Whitman said."
