Alex and the Azure AD team have been hard at work for the last year creating AADConnect. AD password write-back is now GA which is great news.
Generally available (GA) as of today (11-12-14):
- Password write-back in Azure AD Sync: Users can now change their passwords in the cloud and have the change flow all the way back to your on-premises AD.
- The Azure AD App Proxy: This proxy makes it easy to give your employees secure access to on-premises applications like SharePoint and Exchange/OWA from the cloud without having to muck around with your DMZ.
Azure Site Recovery has introduced the ability to replicate and recover VMs directly to Azure without requiring System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
With Azure RemoteApp, you can enable your users to access corporate applications from anywhere and on a variety of devices, scale up or down to meet the dynamic business needs. Azure RemoteApp will be generally available on December 11, 2014. Any Azure RemoteApp instances created during the current public preview period will continue to function as they do today. These instances will automatically transition to a 30-day free trial on December 11, 2014.
