Microsoft News Cycle, week of February 17th

Last week was a relatively quiet for Microsoft, newswise.  There were a series of articles written about Microsoft's plans to expand its facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  There was also a study done by Nasuni that showed how Azure storage outperformed comparable offerings from Amazon and Rackspace.  This is partly a result of our ongoing efforts to flatten our network and improve east-west throughput within the data center.   And finally, there was a story written about an Office 365 win at the state of Texas where security, privacy, and compliance were important considerations. 

Below are the links to the articles that were written:
