Microsoft puts ex-Amazon VP in charge of Cloud Infrastructure and Operations, including data centers
Last week Microsoft put an ex-Amazon.com VP in charge of Cloud Infrastructure and Operations. I’ve had e-mail conversations on the changes with lots of people asking questions, but I couldn’t write anything. Well, now I can blog something because of public disclosure. Suresh Kumar, VP of Cloud Infrastructure and Operations updated his LinkedIn profile.
Last week Suresh’s linkedin profile only showed Suresh’s Amazon experience even though he had been at Microsoft for months and his job change to Microsoft was not added yet.
Now there are these two entries.
There are many more details, but the above is all I could find that has been published.
Will be interesting to see how Suresh does in his role at Microsoft. He has a background that is different than many and I didn’t find any data center experience in his background.
