The Azure driver was completed a while back:

Unfortunately, Microsoft completely redesigned their Azure offerings, and have been pushing folks to use Resource Manager rather than "classic" VM deployments for some time (details:

New Ruby SDK: (note the old SDK is now in the asm branch of that repo)
New gems: azure_mgmt_compute, azure_mgmt_storage, azure_mgmt_network, etc.

Note that while the new sdk has been around for 8 months, it's still in preview. This new architecture will presumably stick around for some time. It may be worth re-designing, or adding a new Azure driver to support Resource Manager.

I personally don't have the bandwidth or background in Ruby to implement this - sorry!
