Yes you read that title correctly, Sony and Microsoft are joining forces in the realm of cloud computing and entertainment! The plan is to share information and infrastructure to further build Microsoft’s Azure into a streaming and processing powerhouse. The deal also states that Sony will begin to use Azure in its own cloud based services as well as develop tools to help other creators. Don’t be surprised that if in a couple of years Sony starts including power of the cloud taglines in announcements!
Needless to say this partnership came out of left field but really goes to show how impressive Azure is. One also has to wonder if the announcement of this partnership has anything to do with Google’s Stadia service. The partnership is in its infancy currently so we won’t see anything on it for a while but the possibilities are exciting! Hmm, I wonder if PlayStation now will also transfer over to Azure?
