HOUSTON, April 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC Software and Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) are continuing their longstanding relationship to help customers make the most of their hybrid cloud environments and accelerate delivery of their digital services to customers.

Now, customers of both BMC Software and Microsoft will be able to use BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management software to manage cloud infrastructure and services built on Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services. Cloud Lifecycle Management creates an easy path for customers who want to migrate from VMware-based clouds to the Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services platform. With these updates, customers will also have the ability to manage digital services delivery, consumption, operations, planning and compliance across multi-vendor cloud infrastructures from a single, unified management platform.

The Microsoft Azure cloud platform provides on-demand infrastructure that scales and adapts to changing business needs. Microsoft Azure enables organizations to build and run highly available applications and services on the same global infrastructure that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. Microsoft Azure delivers a 99.95% monthly SLA and provides automatic OS and service patching, built-in network load balancing and resiliency to hardware failure. Whether an organization is creating new applications or running existing applications, Microsoft Azure provides best-in-class price-performance and end-to-end support.
