Managing Exchange Online with Azure Cloud Shell

So, the cloud, am I right? While it always nice to get away from having to worry about failed hard drives, or backups, or patches, or a million other things, the real upside to using cloud services is that the good folks at Microsoft are able to put so much more into developing new features. Even for services like Exchange that seem mature, there are always new and unexpected ways for them to evolve as part of a huge infrastructure like Office 365 and Azure.

While this blog post isn’t about new features in Exchange Online, it is about a new way to access and administer Exchange Online.

In this blog post I’m going to explore a new feature of Azure that allows for administrators to access Exchange Online in a whole new way.
