#Azure notable updates w48

This is rapidly becoming an Azure & friends update, but anyway I keep my weekly shortlist of notable things to remember


New #AzureAD Access Panel is now Generally Available! (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/11/28/new-azuread-access-panel-is-now-generally-available/)

And long overdue Storesimple virtual devices are now avialable in the ARM portal (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/storsimple-transition-to-newazureportal/) almost. Alas it’s just for virtual devices and not for physical ones and they have not yet started to migrate them plus if you have a mix of physical and virtual you need move back and forth between the old and new experience. Come on Microsoft if you’re serious about storesimple it’s time to move on in a consistent way.
