Microsoft Azure Stack

Innovate through hybrid applications with Azure and Azure Stack

Extend Azure on-premises with Azure Stack

Bring the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to your on-premises environment with Azure Stack. This extension of Azure allows you to modernise your applications across hybrid cloud environments, balancing flexibility and control. Plus, developers can build applications using a consistent set of Azure services and DevOps processes and tools, then collaborate with operations to deploy to the location that best meets your business, technical and regulatory requirements. Pre-built solutions from the Azure Marketplace, including open source tools and technologies, allow developers to speed up new cloud application development.

Adopt consistent application development

Maximise productivity by empowering developers to build and deploy applications the same way whether apps run on Azure or Azure Stack. Just like Azure, Azure Stack supports a broad range of development tools and open source application platforms, languages and frameworks including Java, Python, Node.js and PHP. Developers can:

  • Use the same application model, self-service portal and APIs enabled by Azure Resource Manager
  • Adopt common DevOps processes and tools across Azure and Azure Stack
  • Choose from multiple Linux distributions, Docker-integrated containers and Apache Mesos implementations

Run Azure services on-premises

Adopt hybrid cloud computing on your terms and meet your business and technical requirements with the right combination of cloud and on-premises deployment models for your needs. Consistent Azure IaaS services go far beyond traditional virtualisation. Virtual Machine Scale Sets enable rapid deployments with true auto-scaling for modern workloads. Consistent Azure PaaS services bring hybrid deployment choice and portability to cloud applications. Run fully managed PaaS and serverless computing on-premises and deploy and operate Azure IaaS and PaaS services using the same tools as Azure.

Improve operational excellence with purpose-built systems

Focus on optimising applications using integrated systems that deliver a consistent Azure experience. Get up and running quickly with purpose-built Azure Stack integrated systems from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell EMC, Lenovo and Cisco. These systems come ready to run and offer enterprise-grade customer support. Enable greater quality and reliability across the full operations lifecycle with Azure updates that apply to both hardware and software. Easily integrate Azure Stack with other solutions such as monitoring and identity services.

Pay only for what you use

Just like Azure, you only pay for what you use with Azure Stack. Azure IaaS and PaaS services have no upfront fees and use the same subscriptions, monetary commitments and billing tools as Azure. The pricing structure is like Azure too, but reflects that you are running services at your location.
