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.

This year’s conference will emphasize the hybrid cloud, in which an enterprise can run some operations in house, while shifting others to cloud services. Nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by 2017, IT analyst firm Gartner estimated.

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.

Anderson called these new Azure offerings “enterprise completers,” Anderson said.

“These are the things that organizations want to have to give them assurance and confidence,” of the cloud, he said.
