Frequently asked questions about Azure Modular Data centre
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 affected 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 that 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 an additional cost.
