Windows Azure now offers Virtual Machine hosting similar to IaaS solutions. One of the associated services is something called Azure Connect so that your VM can access on-premise resources (in your own office). What is unclear to me is that AC does not appear to be a complete VPN connection, but you can install the AC connector onto each local resource you wish your hosted VM to have access to. That doesn't sound so fun because to access our SQL server it seems like I'd need to install it on my SQL server AND on my AD-controller. There's no way our admin guys will like that.
Is setting up a more traditional IPSEC VPN a better option for full network integration?
