Microsoft (MSFT) acquires MetricsHub, a developer of tools that automate cloud management with the goal of optimizing performance. Naturally, MetricsHub will be integrated with Microsoft's Azure cloud infrastructure/app development platform. News of the purchase comes shortly after Microsoft updated Azure's enterprise security/management tools - the company has long tried to differentiate Azure through its support for hybrid clouds and integration with Microsoft's enterprise software ecosystem.

    Great news.
    Important note: Microsoft isn't just trying to integrate with its own enterprise software ecosystem. Windows Azure and a secured private connection to the business datacenter can extend ANY enterprise software system. Yeah.. it's a big deal.

     

    Disclaimer: I work for and am long MSFT. And you can try Windows Azure for free for 90 days at http://bit.ly/Z6FrSp. :)
