Microsoft is also expected to release System Center Virtual Machine Manager or SCVMM slated to be released sometime in the second half of this year but dubbed SCVMM 2012. This Paas or platform as a service will manage vm's using Azure to authenticate users against an internal Active Directory. In addition, Azure Connect, once its final release is available, will enable secure connectivity between the vm and the Azure thus completing the cloud puzzle.

"Cloud Power Delivered" is Microsoft's subtitle for Microsoft's TechEd conference this year.
