Whether or not you use any form of hybrid cloud, I think it's important to at least know what's available, and how it's being used. There are two primary uses: One is to extend the traditional datacenter to the cloud, including virtual machines (VMs), networking and storage. The other main use is in building cloud-native applications.
The Microsoft Azure cloud offers a lot of options for both uses, and continues to add services, making it extremely useful and flexible. I've listed some of my favorites here, demonstrating that Azure is a lot more than just a bunch of Hyper-V VMs running Windows.
Within the next year -- or maybe even sooner -- I'll do an updated version of this post, listing more Azure innovation.
