Microsoft Cloud Infrastructure & Operations (MCIO) is chartered with supporting profitable growth of Microsoft’s Cloud business by optimizing the infrastructure capacity management. Cloud services enable a promise of elastic scale and infinite capacity. A key challenge in realizing this promise is to always know the ideal quantity of infrastructure resources (datacenters, power, racks, servers, network devices, bandwidth, IP addresses’) to carry - a hard problem, and employ near real-time mechanisms to achieve the planned resource utilization at scale - an even harder problem.

We envision a dynamic, scalable and distributed system that will allow us to continuously model the planned quantity and automatically adjust the provisioning and consumption rate of cloud infrastructure resources. An ideal system will employ machine learning, change modelling, automation of business processes and logistics, real-time data collection and analysis, prioritization of resource allocations, and other techniques to efficiently deliver customer promise around infinite cloud resources.
