Cloud computingJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – BT customers are poised to benefit from improved choice of cloud services with simplified billing and direct access to Microsoft Azure.

This follows the announcement of BT Compute for Microsoft Azure, a new service that allows BT customers to order Microsoft Azure alongside BT’s own cloud services through its award winning Compute Management System (CMS) online management tool.

The service enables customers to build hybrid cloud infrastructure with a single service wrap, contract and on a single bill.

Neil Lock, Vice President of BT Compute at Global Services, BT, says hybrid cloud has become a major focus for many large enterprises as they choose a variety of cloud solutions to suit their complex business needs.

BT research suggests that 90 percent of its largest customers expect to be using a combination of public and private cloud in the next few years.

“Through our relationship with Microsoft, customers can build their own hybrid cloud environment and enjoy the benefits of Azure whilst removing costly management concerns from the equation,” says Lock.

Aziz Benmalek, vice president, Worldwide Cloud and Hosting Services, Microsoft Corp, says BT is a natural fit to provide managed cloud services on Azure.

“Through our relationship with BT, we’re able to help customers with their infrastructure management and give them the ability to scale their business in a consistent hybrid cloud environment,” says Benmalek.
