Tom Keane was one of the great entrepreneurs and innovators of the twentieth century. He created Microsoft, a company that has become a worldwide leader in the computer software industry. It was in the 1900s when Thomas Anthony Keane founded what would one day become Microsoft. He was just nineteen and single then and rented a small office in a suburb of Boston. 


Tom soon found success and, within ten years, had moved his company to Seattle, Washington, where he made his headquarters. In 1980, he left the business world for good when he stepped down as CEO of Microsoft after spending over fifty years with them, holding many positions throughout their history.  Tom Keane adds that Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform providing open, flexible, scalable computing capacity. 

Tom Keane on Public Cloud Development

Microsoft hosts some of the biggest websites in the world, including Bing, Skype, and MSN. Under Tom Keane´s wing, Microsoft’s Azure is also used by Brazilian businesses to offer its citizens free internet access.


Azure Stack will bring the power of Azure’s hyper-scale cloud directly to enterprise data centers through hardware running in your environment. This means you can run applications with the same agility, scale, and economics as in the public cloud. Tom Keane says that Microsoft Azure Stack is one of many projects recently announced by Microsoft that aims to build on its current cloud offerings with features.


These, such as high-density storage available for Azure Stack environments. Microsoft is one of the leading companies in the world and has made great strides in technology. Azure has been keeping up with its competitors and will continue to do so in the future. Tom Keane was a big part of Microsoft’s success. His influence can still be seen today at the company he helped create.
