Get ready to thumb a ride into the foundations of the cloud. Chris and Mark take you on an audible time hop through the stages of Microsoft data center innovation, planning and scale – into the foundational underpinnings of SharePoint in Office 365. First, they speak with Richard Harrison, data center technical architect, about how Microsoft invents at the physical data center layer (in a full-scale data center lab). Second, Mark speaks with Som Coelho, principal program manager, to understand large-scale, long-term hardware capacity planning. Thirdly, we chat with Zach Rosenfield, principal group program manager, charged with making SharePoint an elastic, reliable, scalable service worldwide. It's a longer episode, and it's worth every 90 minutes of it. Thumbs out. Here we go!
