Targeting cloud, Microsoft set to revamp major enterprise software platforms

Tim Greene | June 4, 2013
At TechEd: Windows Server, SQL Server, others get second major refresh in a year, focus on hybrid cloud.

Microsoft is revising the billing model for Azure for Virtual Machines, Web Roles and Worker Roles services so customers pay per minute rather than per hour, which gives customers the opportunity to save money via more precise charges.

This service for PC and device management and protection is being expanded to do a degree of mobile device management for Windows, Apple iOS and Android devices. Support for Android is new.

With this service, IT can set up policies for the devices that are automatically applied when devices are registered to the service by end users. The end users can then self-provision the applications they need to get their jobs done.

A demo will show how the service can wipe corporate data off a worker's device and leave the worker's data intact.

Anderson describes this as similar to Exchange Active Synch but with finer controls.
