SCOM In The Sky: How Do They Do It?

Ever wanted to know how Microsoft constructs it datacenters? How services like Azure, System Center Advisor, BPOS, Office 365 and the lot are hosted? I mean, even for cloud based services, it has to land somewhere in one or more datacenters. Otherwise it would be nothing but vapor-ware :).

Of course, much of it is kept secret. But Microsoft is also proud about their achievements which is totally understandable. So they have put together some videos and animations about their state of the art datacenters.

This is one of those videos. It shows clearly the approach Microsoft has chosen for its datacenters. Very interesting it is. Since the video isn’t technical at all, it is targeted at a broad audience. Enjoy!
