Azure Adds Directory and Identity Management

Microsoft Azure keeps growing into a fuller and fuller cloud platform. The latest addition is what actually sounds like a narrow piece of function, Windows Azure Active Directory (which has the unfortunate acronym of WAAD).

This WAAD, first shown last month in a developer preview, supports directory services such as identity management and will eventually be WAADed up into Azure itself.

New features include the ability to create cloud apps offerings, single log-on support and a new API that lets apps tap into WAAD data.
