Microsoft created a new series of videos featuring "Tad", the fictional spokesperson for the equality fictional company VMlimited (an obvious dig at VMware).
"About The hidden bummers of going too far beyond virtualization
Some IT providers are talking cloud, but still living in a virt-based world. See why Microsoft offers a private cloud solution that is built for the future and ready now," Microsoft state.
In the videos, "Tad" looks and sounds like a 1970s movie reject with heavy sideburns. Microsoft is trying to make the point that companies like "VMlimited" are stuck in the past while Microsoft's private cloud solutions have features that the competition doesn't have.
Check out all the five video below:
