Microsoft is partnering with the U.S. Government in the journey to the cloud, providing both infrastructure (IaaS) and platform (PaaS) offerings to enable digital transformation. Our government customers are responsible for the most sensitive data and the most critical applications in the country. We are committed to delivering the broadest array of services to meet government regulatory requirements and security needs. Azure Government is the mission-critical cloud, providing more than 7,000 Federal, State, and local customers the exclusivity, highest compliance and security, hybrid flexibility, and commercial-grade innovation they need to better meet citizen expectations.
Today at Microsoft Government Cloud Forum in Washington D.C., we’re announcing a number of important advances for Azure Government, the dedicated cloud for our U.S. Government customers and their partners. We’re expanding our support for highly-classified workloads, delivering advanced technologies like Blockchain and support for High Performance Computing, and increasing our available security capabilities with Azure Security Center. In addition, we’re launching Citrix VDI on Azure Government to help our government customers deliver user workloads from the cloud.
