Over the last few days the Microsoft faithful gathered at WPC to celebrate the last 12 months and get a preview of what is coming next. With CEO Satya Nadella's stated vision for Microsoft being centred on cloud and mobile it's no surprise that Azure and Office 365 have featured heavily in the announcements. Key Azure announcements include:
- The new Azure Preview Portal which features a host of new
management tools for the management of virtual machines and Azure SQL databases.
- The launch of Azure ExpressRoute, designed bridge on-premises environments and Azure.
- Further expansion of the preview of the Azure Government Cloud.
- Extension of the StorSimple range of hybrid storage solutions.
