On January 13, 2010 Microsoft and HP created a $250M partnership to advanced cloud computing and “simplify technology environments for businesss of all sizes”.

The companies plan to deliver new solutions that will do the following:

  • Be built on a next-generation infrastructure-to-application model
  • Advance cloud computing by speeding application implementation
  • Eliminate complexities of IT management and automate existing manual processes to lower the overall costs

Microsoft’s press release has an interesting video about this interesting new partnership.
