Learn how Windows Azure Pack brings the benefit of the cloud to your data center
Enterprises today desire the flexibility and affordability that cloud environments offer, while service providers want the ability to support more enterprise customers. Windows Azure Pack (WAP) builds on the power of Windows Server and System Center to deliver an enterprise-class, cost-effective solution for self-service, multi-tenant cloud infrastructure and application services that run in your data center on your hardware, giving you the benefit of the cloud, with the customization and control you desire.
WAP brings Microsoft Azure technologies to the data center, addressing a number of key requirements for those who want to embrace the service provider model for delivering IT services. Microsoft Azure and WAP tie into the Microsoft vision for the Cloud OS, a hybrid cloud solution that helps enterprises transform their current infrastructure to deliver agility and cost effectiveness. With the Cloud OS, companies can quickly and flexibly build and manage modern applications across platforms, locations, and devices, unlock insights from volumes of existing and new data, and support user productivity wherever they are and on whatever device they choose.
This free course, “Windows Azure Pack: Infrastructure as a Service” Jump Start, on July 16 and 17, focuses on WAP’s IaaS, including self-service and automation of virtual machine roles, virtual networking, clouds, and SQL Server, along with System Center and third-party integration.

A boy can wish to have his own little slice of Azure inside his firewall (um... that sounds... um... a little weird... anyway...)
If a private cloud sounds interesting but you'd rather buy it as an appliance'ish, Mary Jo Foley has a few sources that say we might see Azure In A Box coming back, Microsoft to try again to deliver an Azure 'cloud in a box' appliance
