AT&T signs $2 billion cloud deal with Microsoft

While AWS leads the cloud infrastructure market by a wide margin, Microsoft isn't doing too badly, ensconced firmly in second place, the only other company with double-digit share. Today, it announced a big deal with AT&T that encompasses both Azure cloud infrastructure services and Office 365. A person with knowledge of the contract pegged the combined deal at a tidy $2 billion, a nice feather in Microsoft's cloud cap.
