New Delhi: On Tuesday, Redmond-based major technology Microsoft launched public cloud services from local data centres. This will aid business organizations to fuel inclusive growth and spur innovation.

As a part of the new launch, Microsoft will inaugurate three data centres – Chennai, Pune and Mumbai – in the country. The new centres will start operations after the facility is inaugurated by the respective chief ministers – J Jayalalithaa and Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday.

Market research firm Gartner claims that the public cloud market will be at $2 billion by 2018.

“More organisations and governments will adopt the public cloud which will open up more opportunities for Microsoft,” Tyler Bryson, general manager, marketing and operations, Microsoft India, said explaining the launch.

“Enterprise-grade performance, flexibility and hybrid capability, openness and trustworthiness are differentiating factors of the Microsoft cloud. In addition, comprehensive higher-level business services enable new business possibilities for customers,” he added.

A public cloud is based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the internet.

Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.

Microsoft has reportedly curated a software fix for the inaccuracy of its stylus called “Surface Pen” for Surface Pro tablet users who have been facing issues on using the digital pen, while resting the hand on the screen.

“Microsoft has been investigating a fix, and the latest Surface Pro firmware update, available on Windows Update now addresses problems with ‘palm rejection affecting Surface Pen accuracy’,” The Verge reported late on Thursday.

The solution comes as a relief to the Surface Pro owners because the inaccuracy of the “Surface Pen” got treated by a simple software fix instead of involving unit replacements.

“Affected users have confirmed pen strokes are now fully accurate when resting a hand on the Surface Pro screen,” the report added.
