Azure's allure attracts Salesforce

Aloha,

The sky belongs to all of us and so do the clouds.
Microsoft Azure and Microsoft's flagship Office have come a long way. All kinds of deal have been struck. Do you know what? the product is damn good and getting better by the hour. It's also the story of companies/enterprises looking at their bottom lines. If you want to win, you got to be in the race. Days of single enterprises making it on their own are getting sparser.

Microsoft and Oracle enters into an alliance thanks to the data centers:

Now comes on the heels of these alliances SalesForce joining the Azure bandwagon. As this post is being written SalesForce is enterring into Cloud Partnership with Microsoft:

It is nice that longtime rivals are coming together to achieve something meaning meaningful for both.

There are no enemies, no friends just eternal interests.
