Till now, Windows Server team was under Scott Guthrie of Enterprise and Cloud unit at Microsoft. Today, ZDNet reported that Microsoft is moving Windows Server team under Terry Myerson of Windows and Devices Group. It is an obvious change since Windows Server is based on the same core as Windows. This is also quite interesting because Mike Neil, who heads Windows Server engineering, and Brad Anderson, who heads Remote Desktop Services are staying at Cloud & Enterprise team.
Microsoft confirmed this changes with the following statement,
“As we advance our goal to build operating systems that provide the best experiences from the smallest IoT devices to the largest scale server deployments in public and private clouds, the Windows Server team will move from the Cloud + Enterprise Group to the Windows and Devices Group. These groups already work closely together and we believe this move will help us bring even more value to our customers as we deliver our most cloud-ready server OS with the Windows Server 2016 launch this fall.”
