Microsoft is currently hosting its Worldwide Partners Conference in Washington, and among the many announcements made during the event was the introduction of the Azure Platform Appliance. The Azure Platform Appliance’s main purpose is to overcome large enterprises and government’s problems of not permitting (for licensing, privacy, or legal reasons) their data to be stored and processed on hardware belonging to another company, such as what happens with Azure and Microsoft.
