  • Want single sign-on (SSO) for users accessing Azure Active Directory apps via an iOS device? The MyApps SSO App Launcher makes that possible. Microsoft is promising a similar tool for Android and Windows Phone later this year.
  • The Azure Active Directory custom branding option which Microsoft first began testing last December has now been extended to work with most sign-in scenarios, meaning you can add corporate logos and information to most services users sign into. More details here.
  • AWS’ Trusted Advisor service has added five new checks to its monitoring service, including four linked to the Route 53 DNS management service. Trusted Advisor now offers 37 checks in total.
  • Adobe Media Server has been added to the AWS marketplace, creating a new option for media streaming via AWS. The monthly charge is $US5, plus streaming fees.

Cloud Patches rounds up new features and services added to major cloud computing platforms each week..
