As you may have already read, Mike Manos will be leaving Microsoft in early May to return to Chicago and take a leadership position with Digital Realty Trust. Those of you who read this blog regularly, or who followed his Loose Bolts blog, know that Mike’s been an integral leader in our data center organization. I feel privileged to have had Mike as part of my Infrastructure Services leadership team — he’s done an outstanding job delivering on our data center strategy, encouraging cross-industry information sharing, and was instrumental in helping us build a world-class data center team.
I want to publicly thank Mike for his excellent work and wish him the best in his new position. All of us here are going to miss his enthusiasm and passion. And, I’m fortunate to have the fantastic data center team he helped build here to continue driving data center innovation and delivering on our Generation 4 data centers and beyond. There is so much more we want to do to take cloud infrastructure, including data centers, to the next level.
I’m sure we’ll continue to see great things from Mike in the data center industry. And he’s got one more post in mind for this blog, you’ll see that sometime next week.
