"Virtualization will become more important to the industries we serve. With technologies such as Azure Digital Twins, customers can build digital replicas of their buildings, access digital tours, and assess solutions prior to implementation. This will require significant CPU power, and with Azure and NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Workstation, TBI can save on technology investments and do things faster and better."

Dirk jan Langbroek, Director, Shared Service Center, TBI

"With the advent of this pandemic, we have allocated our computing resources and our scientific skill sets to model the dynamics of the spike protein and its interaction with angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). We are extremely grateful to Dr. Lee, Dr. Weinstein, and their teams at Microsoft in supporting our efforts to discover novel binding sites to [respond to this disease]."

Dr Patrick Soon-Shiong, Chairman and CEO, ImmunityBio

"By migrating to the cloud, we are able to spin up extra virtual machines (VMs) if something requires some additional scenario analysis. Previously we didn't have access to this sort of compute on demand. And obviously the performance improvements are very welcome. This access to compute on demand helps my team deliver better pricing to our customers."

Karin Bergeron, Managing Director and Head of XVA Trading at Scotiabank, a Riskfuel customer
