Frequently asked questions about Azure Modular Datacentre

  • Microsoft is partnering with satellite operators to provide an option for secure and reliable connectivity to field deployed MDC units.

    This connectivity is achieved through a network high availability module which continuously evaluates network performance. In the event of a network disruption, the network high availability module will move traffic from the impacted network to a backup satellite connection. This resiliency ensures continued delivery of essential hyperscale services through Azure. Alternatively, MDC can use satellite communications as the primary connection where no other network is available.

  • Microsoft is offering MDC units to US Government agencies in the 48 contiguous United States.

  • MDC units leverage state of the art security, including RF shielding, to ensure workloads of any classification can be ran securely without breach.

    • Azure Stack Hub foundational services (compute, storage, networking) are included in the base fee.
    • Additional Azure services such as App Services are charged separately on a consumption basis if connected, or on a per-core basis if disconnected. The model for these services aligns with the standard Azure Stack Hub offering.

    Cleared and OCONUS support packages are available at additional cost.
