"By moving batch workloads to Windows Azure or a Microsoft Private Cloud, companies are able to take advantage of cloud economics," said Bob Ellsworth, Microsoft Worldwide Director of Platform Modernization. "Combined with the advanced analytics included in SQL Server, the customer not only realizes great savings, scale and flexibility but increased business value through self-service BI."
BluePhoenix is offering a free Proof of Concept for the Batch In The Cloud service. "To manage the scale and demand, we're going to start with a complimentary assessment of the customer environment to identify the most appropriate applications for this service," says Oppedisano. "Once those applications are identified, we will build the roadmap and execute the Proof of Concept on the cloud platform of the customer's choice."
