A few months ago I’ve been working with my colleagues Mr. Angel “Java” Lopez, and Mr. Pablo “Lito” Damiani in the Azure Services Management Tools. I’m really proud to say I’ve been part of this project. We also has been supported by other Southies like Maximiliano Deboli , Sebastian Iacomuzzi, Edgardo Rossetto, Pablo Costantini, Matias Woloski and Paulo Arancibia (our UX great master).
During this project we created a set of tool for enable easy management of the new Microsoft’s Azure Services. Windows Azure Services Platform has been just announced at Microsoft PDC as the Microsoft’s processing platform on the clouds. Now cloud computing takes the center stage.
We could quickly say that Azure is an Software as a Service Platform, that runs on Microsoft Infrastructure.
This tools include a set of Powershell Commandlets to work with Access Control, Workflow Services and SQL Data Services. We also include an unified Windows Management Console Snap-In as UI to work with this commandlets.
This tools has been used at PDC presentation: Identity Roadmap for Software + Services.
