- Microsoft has updated its Azure Preview Portal, changing the way individual blades are displayed, adding more personalisation features and incorporating a proper tabbed interface. The announcement post has a full list of all the new features.
- Other features added across the Azure platform this week include row-level security in SQL Server; conditional access to Active Directory apps based on multi-factor authentication; and an Azure RMS migration kit. That should keep everyone busy.
- AWS launched a preview software development kit (SDK) for Go, based on an existing open source SDK for the platform.
- Elsewhere, AWS has updated DynamoDB, adding the ability to add and delete Global Secondary Indexes on the fly and cutting the minimum amount of Reserved Capacity you need to buy. Read more at the announcement post.
- As we reported last week, Amazon has launched WorkMail, an AWS-based mail hosting platform. It also took the opportunity to rename its cloud-based storage platform from Zocalo to WorkDocs.
- Also worth noting from last week's reports: VMware's vCloud Air plans to support some Google Cloud Platform features. The big question here is whether that will happen in Australia when VMware's platform launches this year.
