Office Gemini: Office 365 to receive a back-end and deployment overhaul

With the revealing of Office Gemini by Mary Jo Foley over on ZDNet, I thought I would take a quick jaunt around a few typical avenues to see if I could find some low-hanging fruit to contribute to the conversation. Lo and behold, here we go:

(Update: The profile has been removed, but for now, it’s still cached in Google and Bing):

Redesigning Office 365 backend architecture and deployment strategy in Office Gemini and beyond (ongoing)

  • Designing Office365 deployment in ultra-small capacity units to serve local customers
  • Fully automated automatic site resilience solution for Exchange server
  • Owning data protection scorecard – across backend of Office 365 – Exchange (~150M users)
  • That’s not very much to go on, but a redesign of the back-end architecture of Office 365 makes it seem as though the efforts being put into Office Gemini are quite significant and perhaps a new base with which to build on for what’s to come in Office 16.

    Where the future of Office is concerned, we already know that there’s a project for a feature in a future version of Excel called “Analyze,” so perhaps that will squeeze its way into Office Gemini as well. I expect we’ll all be completely clued-in when Build 2013 rolls around this June.

    Either way, I just wanted to cook up a little short really fast based on this small mention I found and help add to the validity of the conversation.

    Now, I’m off to do some real searching! ;)
