Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Details

Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track is a program whereby Microsoft and selected hardware providers jointly test hardware and software configurations optimized for private clouds. Those that qualify are then made available as operationally validated reference platforms. In addition, the Fast Track program provides guidelines on deployment and operation. This has major benefits in reducing deployment costs, shortening implementation time and ensuring stable system operation.
