Microsoft to set up cloud research center in Taiwan


Microsoft Corp. and Taiwan’s economics ministry said they plan to set up a research center on the island by next year, in the software company’s first Asian foray into the budding cloud computing industry.

Cloud computing — the hosting and storage of services and data on remote centralized computers, is expected to cut costs and has quickly become the sector’s buzzword. Many of the world’s largest technology companies have jumped on the bandwagon.

There were no details on the size of investment or the number of people the Taipei center will employ, but the establishment of the center is expected to benefit contract manufacturers such as Hon Hai and Quanta.

During a visit to Taipei, Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said on Wednesday the Software and Services Excellence Center will focus on co-ordinating and further developing the cloud computing efforts with its contract manufacturing partners.

“We need to keep our ability to really work with our ODM (original design manufacturing) and OEM (original equipment manufacturing) partners on what the devices will look like,” Ballmer said.

    Thanks for enabling me to obtain new tips about pc’s. I also hold the belief that certain of the best ways to maintain your laptop in prime condition is by using a hard plastic material case, or perhaps shell, which fits over the top of the computer. A majority of these protective gear will be model distinct since they are made to fit perfectly above the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the seller, or from third party places if they are intended for your mobile computer, however not all laptop can have a covering on the market. Again, thanks for your guidelines.
