Microsoft Azure Stack

Application modernisation is at the heart of digital transformation, with the opportunity to help companies engage customers, empower employees, optimise operations and transform products.

While Azure provides a rich platform for developers to build modern applications, some applications can face obstacles that impact their operation in the cloud such as; latency, intermittent connectivity, and regulatory impacts being primary examples. This is where Azure Stack comes in.

Azure Stack provides a way to run native Azure applications in your data centre. With a consistent cloud platform, organisations can confidently make technology decisions based on business requirements, rather than business decisions based on technology complications.

The goal and power of Microsoft Azure Stack is easy to express. It is bringing Azure into your data centre.

It doesn’t just look like Azure (like Windows Azure Pack), it is Azure. Your developers and administrators can use the same Azure Resource Manager templates and can use the same APIs to interact with Azure Stack as they do with Azure.

Acquire the 4 main benefits of Azure Stack

By combining the power of Azure with Azure Stack, you get the only true hybrid cloud solution available in the market. This provides you with a consistent Azure experience that increases efficiency, flexibility and productivity.

1. Consistent hybrid application development

Maximise developer productivity by empowering them to build and deploy applications the same way, whether they run on Azure or Azure Stack.

2. Azure services available on-premises

Adopt hybrid cloud computing on your terms. Meet business, regulatory and technical requirements, with the flexibility to choose the right combination of deployment models across Azure and Azure Stack.

3. Purpose-built systems for operational excellence

Focus on optimising business applications and services, with integrated systems that are designed to deliver consistent Azure innovation in a predictable manner.

4. Infrastructure modernisation

Shift from virtual infrastructure to a modern platform. Azure and Azure Stack offer the ability to radically change the approach to deploying platform services. The powerful combination of hybrid services helps you transition away from legacy hosted virtual machines to elastic and agile application services.

Hybrid cloud with an Azure-consistent experience

Azure Stack is an extension of Azure, bringing the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to on-premises environments. Organisations can now build modern applications across hybrid cloud environments, balancing the right amount of flexibility and control.
