New Microsoft ad focuses on the impact of the cloud on cancer research

After debuting a pair of touching commercials showing off how its technologies can improve the lives of others, Microsoft recently debuted another spot that touches on how its Azure cloud technologies are empowering cancer researchers.

In the spot, cancer researcher Wu Feng talks about how the cloud has impacted his research. He notes that, while it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome, Microsoft's cloud technologies have enabled his team to sequence up to 100 per day — a massive step up in the fight against such a horrible disease.
