What does the future of Microsoft Azure VM backup hold?
Today, Microsoft announced a whole slew of enhancements to Microsoft Azure IaaS backup capabilities. While the announcement is focused on native backups (Azure to Azure), there is one adjacent development that really makes me excited: the new feature called Snapshot Extension.

Funny Microsoft Video Introduces NEW Migration Automation Toolkit (VMware Migration in minutes, not hours)
I’m not going to try and set this video up – it speaks for itself.  Suffice it to say that it’s a very interesting (and unexpectedly hilarious) look at what the Building Clouds team has done to make migrating from VMware to Hyper-V (and Azure) very fast and very easy. You can read more about the Migration Automation Toolkit (MAT) here.

Released: Windows Azure Desktop Hosting Reference Architecture Guide
This document defines a set of architectural blocks for using Windows Azure Virtual Machines to create multitenant, hosted Windows desktop and application services, referred to in this document as “desktop hosting.” The primary goal is to enable hosting providers to create secure, scalable, and reliable desktop hosting solution offers for small- and medium-sized organizations with up to 1,500 users. The intended audience for this reference architecture is hosting providers who want to leverage Windows Azure infrastructure services to deliver desktop hosting services and Subscriber Access Licenses (SALs) to multiple tenants via the Microsoft Service Provider Licensing Agreement (SPLA) program. To deliver a desktop hosting solution via Microsoft’s SPLA program, hosting partners leverage Windows Server and the Windows Desktop Experience feature to deliver Windows users an application experience that is familiar to business users and consumers. Although Windows 8, Windows 7, and earlier Windows client versions are not licensed for SPLA, the Desktop Experience feature in Windows Server 2012 provides a similar user experience and application support.

Why Microsoft is “The” Cloud Computing Provider
In my last blog post, Cloud Computing Platforms- A Race to the Bottom, I wrote about Google’s decision to reduce compute engine pricing and how it implies a shift in the way providers compete in the market. Continuing the trend, Microsoft also recently stated that they are committed to matching Amazon Web Services current and future pricing; setting out what would suggest a very aggressive competition to come.

Backup to the cloud using Windows Azure Backup
One of the use cases of cloud computing Infrastructure as a Service is data recovery. IaaS service models have unlimited compute and storage capacity without upfront investments. More and more vendors are adding support for backup to the cloud. Some examples are Microsoft who acquired StorSimple. Storsimple is a hardware appliance which offers local storage and a gateway to various cloud storage providers. Veeam Backup & Replication Cloud Edition offers the same kind of functionality delivered in software.

Don’t Count Microsoft Out of the Public Cloud Race Just Yet
Microsoft this week announced the general availability of Azure Infrastructure Services.  This marks a notable course correction for Microsoft, which initially provided Azure solely through a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model.  While many market observers assume that public cloud IaaS in the enterprise is now a three horse race between Amazon AWS, Rackspace and Google, they may be selling Microsoft short. Why might they be underestimating Azure Infrastructure Services?Enterprises like Microsof...

Will Azure Cloud Services be Microsoft’s New OS?
Microsoft makes the most popular OS in the world. That’s been true for over 30 years. Moreover, they have developed software for businesses, and games, and now are trying their best to enter and make an impact in the smart phone market. But could it be that their best new market is the Cloud? Could they be gearing towards having a second operations software similar to Windows OS, but at the same time different? That operations software is Azure, their Cloud service.
