Enterprise IT vendor Microsoft – at the Build 2014 developer conference in San Francisco – today announced Azure Preview Portal to remove cloud related complexity.
The company said the new cloud environment within Microsoft Azure provides an integrated cloud experience.
“We are bringing together cross-platform technologies, services and tools that enable developers and businesses to innovate with enterprise-grade scalability at startup speed,” said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president, Cloud and Enterprise Group, Microsoft, in a blog post.
Microsoft said many cloud vendors leave customers without the tools or capabilities to navigate the complex realities of cloud computing.
“That’s why today we are continuing down a path of rapid innovation. In addition to our groundbreaking new Microsoft Azure Preview portal, we announced several enhancements our customers need to fully tap into the power of the cloud,” Guthrie said.
Microsoft Azure Preview portal will have dozens of enhancements to our Azure services across Web, mobile, data and our infrastructure services.
The company said it is committed to building the most open and flexible cloud with Azure support for automation software from Puppet Labs and Chef.
In addition, Microsoft has removed the throttle off its Application Insights preview, making it easier for developers to build, manage and iterate on their apps in the cloud with seamless integration into the IDE.
The software vendor also announced .NET Foundation for the .NET developer community. Microsoft will also be making the .NET Compilers Preview (Rosyln) available through the .NET Foundation.
