Microsoft Unveils Cloud-Based Biz App Beta, Office 365

The unveiling of the public beta for Office 365 could be seen as yet another step — and a big one — in Microsoft’s commitment to Cloud Computing. Stuart Johnston reports.

Microsoft has announced it has begun widespread public beta testing of its Office 365 cloud-based online business application subscription service.

Cloud Storage and Backup Benefits

Protecting your company’s data is critical. Cloud storage with automated backup is scalable, flexible and provides peace of mind. Cobalt Iron’s enterprise-grade backup and recovery solution is known for its hands-free automation and reliability, at a lower cost. Cloud backup that just works.

The service combines cloud delivery of the latest versions of Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) enterprise services — Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010 and Lync 2010 — with the Office 2010 Web Apps, as well as the option to upgrade to Office 2010 Professional Plus.

If Office 365 sounds a bit like Microsoft’s popular Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) subscription service, that’s because it will replace BPOS when it’s released commercially later this year, according to an FAQthe company posted online.

Microsoft introduced Office 365last fall and began a more than 10,000-organization, invitation-only beta at that time. Now the software giant is greatly expanding that number.
