- The AWS Mobile Console App now allows you to log in with multiple identities — handy if you're managing multiple AWS systems. The free app is available on Android and iOS.
- AWS has also added multiple Windows Server 2012 R2 images to EC2, including SQL Server 2014 updates. More details here.
- Azure HDInsight — Microsoft's Azure-hosted version of Hadoop and associated big data tools — now supports Hadoop 2.4. The update produces a claimed performance improvement of up to 100 times current results.
- Azure's AD Graph Library for .NET is now generally available, which should make development of C# apps that use Azure Active Directory simpler.
