Get familiar with quantum computing. In the works for 12 years, Microsoft Cloud's Corporate Vice President Julia White says these systems will shape Microsoft's future. Cheddar's Hope King spoke with White at Microsoft's headquarters on Wednesday about competition in the cloud computing space. Microsoft's Azure, its cloud service, made up 31.8 percent of Q2 2017 earnings. Azure revenue also accelerated by 97 percent last quarter. Microsoft is also increasing its efforts to combat cyber attacks. To be proactive, White says Microsoft spends $1 billion each year on cybersecurity.
