The team responsible for Windows Server will be moving to the company's Windows and Devices Group under Terry Myerson, bringing all versions of Windows under the same umbrella.

In addition to the Windows Server team, the Remote Desktop Services team will also be making the transition, though the heads of both products, Mike Neil and Brad Anderson, respectively, will remain in the Cloud and Enterprise division.

Speaking to Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet, a spokesperson outlined the objectives of the move:

"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."

Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie will remain as the head of the Cloud and Enterprise Group. A date for the transition has not been revealed.
