The Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track program is a joint effort between Microsoft and its hardware partners. The goal of the program is to help organizations develop and quickly implement private clouds while reducing both complexity and risk. The program provides a reference architecture that combines Microsoft software, consolidated guidance, and validated configurations with partner technology, such as computing, network, and storage architectures, in addition to value-added software components.
The private cloud model provides much of the efficiency and agility of cloud computing, along with the increased control and customization that are achieved through dedicated private resources. With Private Cloud Fast Track, Microsoft and its hardware partners can help provide organizations both the control and the flexibility that are required to reap the potential benefits of the private cloud.
