This is a sort of "Azure consistent cloud in a box"—well, a datacenter-friendly rack or set of racks—that will let enterprise customers take advantage of its private and hybrid cloud capabilities. Microsoft also announced new Azure VM and storage capabilities and a new Azure Marketplace.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/cps-hero.jpg?1413899004" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-cloud-platform-system-brings-azure-prem" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Cloud Windows Server 2012 Tue, 21 Oct 2014 13:42:00 +0000 45241 at http://winsupersite.com Remote Desktop Preview for Windows Phone 8.1 http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/remote-desktop-preview-windows-phone-81 <div class="field-deck"> The first universal app?

After my ruminations on Microsoft's increasingly hostile stance toward IT pros last week, the erstwhile software giant announced a blockbuster $7.2 billion takeover bid for Nokia, making good on its promise to transition into a provider of devices and services. Since then? Well. It's been a blur.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/blue-when-hero.jpg?1378833573" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/feeling-blue-about-microsoft-heres-welcome-update-product-availability" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows 8 Windows Server 2012 Tue, 10 Sep 2013 17:18:00 +0000 28842 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 Now Available on MSDN, TechNet http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/windows-81-windows-server-2012-r2-now-available-msdn-technet <div class="field-deck"> Admit it, you knew this was coming </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Reversing course, Microsoft announced today that MSDN and TechNet subscribers can download and install the final, RTM versions of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
