IT Planning Information for Microsoft Cloud Resources

IT Planning Information for Microsoft Cloud Resources

As your company considers on-premise versus cloud based services it can become quite the tangled mess of information as you dive deeper into what is available.

Over the last couple of weeks I have pointed you towards some excellent resources to look into Microsoft Cloud based services adn this week I want to give you another collection of planning tools that can help you make these decisions for your own company or business.

The Microsoft Cloud IT Architecture Resources portal over on TechNet was just recently updated with new information with the goal to help you learn more Microsoft's cloud services.

"These architecture tools and posters give you information about Microsoft cloud services and platforms, including Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Intune, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, private cloud datacenter, and hybrid on-premises and cloud solutions. IT decision makers and architects can use these resources to determine the ideal solutions for their workloads and to make decisions about core infrastructure components such as identity and security."

The collection of resources is separated into three key areas:
