Unilever and Lufthansa Systems have deployed Microsoft's Azure cloud platform to build applications in a private cloud.
Lufthansa Systems and Unilever are using System Center 2012, the latest version of Microsoft's systems management tool, to manage their private cloud infrastructure.
“Our private cloud will help us meet our goal of doubling Unilever’s business without increasing our environmental footprint,” said Mike Royle, enterprise services IT director at Unilever.
“Working with Avanade, we are betting on System Center 2012 as the management platform to extend our investments in virtualisation toward private cloud, to automate processes and to ensure the reliability of our infrastructure and application services.”
Holger Berndt, head of Microsoft Servers at Lufthansa Systems, said: “With the integrated approach and technology, we can use the people and skills we have in place now to build the private cloud services we need to meet the complex IT requirements of our customers.”
