Microsoft working on management portal for public and private clouds.

Microsoft is working on a management tool which can manage both private- and public clouds, ZDNet reports. The product, which is codenamed "Concero" will be able to manage service across private- and public cloud. Concero will be part of the System Center suite of management products from Microsoft.

Concero will be able to manage the Hyper-V hypervisor and the new version of System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2012 for which Microsoft detailed some of its features during its Teched conference in November last year. Concero will also be able to manage Windows Azure and Azure appliances. The tool will be built on Silverlight so it can be accessed through a web browser.
