Microsoft's Cloud Ecosystem Categorized and Visualized

It's not tough to get confused about what Microsoft provides from a Cloud ecosystem perspective. The lineup seems to change almost daily. And, as the company continues to expand its offerings, you can get lost in what's new, updated, or changed. Microsoft intends to become the Cloud supplier for all customers, no matter if businesses choose on-premises, private Clouds, opt-in to tackle value of the Public Cloud, or utilize a mixture (Hybrid) of both. Microsoft provides products, services, and technologies for each choice. And, with the company's constant insistence to promote its Public offerings over all others, it's also easy to forget that Microsoft still does offer on-premises Cloud technologies like System Center 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Fortunately, Microsoft is providing the following graphic (also available as a downloadable poster in the link below) to help visualize what exactly Microsoft is offering for both its Public and Private Clouds. This is a handy reference for those trying to compare what Microsoft offers in its various implementations. Click the graphic to get the full view.
