The global health pandemic continues to impact every organization—large or small—their employees, and the customers they serve. Over the last several months, we have seen firsthand the role that cloud computing plays in sustaining operations across the board that helps us live, work, learn, and play.

During this unparalleled time all of Microsoft’s cloud services, in particular Azure, Microsoft Teams, Windows Virtual Desktop, and Xbox Live experienced unprecedented demand. It has been our privilege to provide support and the infrastructure needed to help our customers successfully accelerate their cloud adoption to enable digital transformation during such a critical time.

Over the last 90 days, we have learned a lot and I want to share those observations with you all. The following video has been developed to provide a more technical look at how we scaled Azure as the COVID-19 outbreak rapidly pushed demand for cloud services.
