Microsoft plans large expansion in China to push cloud services

Michael Kan | Sept. 6, 2012
To benefit from a growing Chinese market, Microsoft on Thursday said it is increasing its investment in the country, with new hires, more research for local requirements, and an expansion to additional cities and provinces to bring cloud computing services to its enterprise customers.

The strategy Microsoft is pushing in China relates to all its products, and not only Windows 8. "As much as we love Windows 8, the opportunity is at least in servers, at least in the Office products, at least in the (Windows Phone) product, and yes obviously in the Windows platform," Haupter said.

The company estimates about 40 percent of the enterprise users in China use some kind of Microsoft private cloud-related software. The company is also working on providing a public cloud offering to China.
