Microsoft Dynamics GP is coming to Windows Azure in June; Microsoft confirmed this at this year’s Convergence event. This new deployment option will offer what you would expect from an enterprise-grade cloud service – stability, protection, security and the ability to scale and grow. Microsoft has referred to the Azure service as being elastic and the fact that it can grow without adding servers will be great for partners.
