  1. Add Cloud Services

    Add the ability to have Worker Roles in Azure Pack.
    In general, strive for feature parity with cloud based Azure. This gives companies a path to the cloud.
    Having a feature complete version of Azure that can be run in-house lets developers create Paas style applications that can still be run in private data centers. Then once everyone is comfortable, it can easily be moved to the cloud. Today its a huge leap to the cloud since some of the Paas style features (eg.

  2. Azure Pack Backup

    Similar to azure backup for DPM but as a service that can be offered in Azure Pack so that customers can backup their data from DPM to the hosting providers Azure Pack service.

    Also include an agent that can be installed directly onto a customer machine that can backup directly to the hosters backup portal (so that they are not bound to DPM in the case of smaller customers that may not require DPM).

  5. Collaboration Suite

    Merge WAP with Collaboration Suite (Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, etc)

    WAP could be the web front end of all MS products. Why not?
