    A common truth in this industry is that emerging markets often leapfrog mature ones when it comes to adopting new business models and technologies.

    One example that illustrates this well is cloud computing in China.

    Cloud-based infrastructure is budding across cities and provinces throughout China to support the country’s rapid transformation and evolution into the world’s foremost economy. To help provide the mixed source infrastructure necessary to facilitate the awesome growth and change taking place across China, Microsoft today signed a collaboration agreement with China Standard Software Corporation (CS2C), the country’s leading domestic Linux operating system provider.
