Microsoft Azure tools aim to help companies manage hybrid clouds

All you Admin's out there who are using Azure, you might want to become aware of this.

For the kick-off of its annual Tech Ed user conference, being held this week in Houston, Microsoft has released a bevy of tools and services to help administrators connect their internal operations to Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

“This is about leveraging assets that organizations already have in their data centers,” said Brad Anderson, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s cloud and enterprise division.

Many of the services Microsoft unveiled this week build on Microsoft’s base of IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service) offerings.
