Inside Microsoft’s Internet Infrastructure & Its Plans For The Future - GigaOM

Microsoft is building it's own CDN (content delivery network), they currently have a 100Gb/s backbone which they'll increase to 500Gb/s. They seem to be using Level 3 for the network (who already provide CDN services themselves).

They are linking 99 datacentres and adding 10,000 servers a month.

It looks like MS are gunning for Google/Amazon in the cloud-computing/data storage markets.
