How can I get started building hybrid cloud apps in Azure?

The notion of hybrid apps, where you run things on both your local and cloud infrastructures, is gaining traction and the cloud providers are making things easier. A good case in point is Microsoft and its Azure cloud. They have an interesting recent blog post about how you can construct hybrid cloud apps, combining an instance running on Azure with local Windows resources and managed centrally.

They walk you through the steps to set this up, running a series of VMs on HyperV locally just to make things more interesting. They also have links to several scenarios, such as setting up hybrid Sharepoint or Office365 deployments. This is a powerful reason to check out Azure if you are already a Microsoft shop.
