Microsoft yesterday announced that it would be adding new data centers and expanding its cloud services in Europe and the Middle East. Etisalat is also providing consulting, migration and managed services to ensure the smooth transition of business customers to the cloud and sees tremendous potential from Microsoft's intelligent cloud service from data centers.
