Build modern applications across hybrid cloud environments
Azure Stack is an extension of Azure, bringing the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to on-premises environments. Only Azure Stack lets you deliver Azure services from your organisation’s datacenter, while balancing the right amount of flexibility and control—for truly-consistent hybrid cloud deployments.
Speed development with a consistent environment
Maximise productivity by empowering developers to build and deploy applications the same way, whether your apps run on Azure or Azure Stack.
- One set of tools—Use the same application model, self-service portal, and APIs enabled by Azure Resource Manager.
- Common DevOps—Experience continuous deployment and integration using Jenkins and Visual Studio Team Services, plus automation using Chef and Azure PowerShell DSC extensions.
- Open source—Use a broad range of open source technologies including Java, Python, Node.js, PHP, Docker-integrated containers, Mesosphere DC/OS and Cloud Foundry.
Run Azure Stack services consistently across your environment
Meet your business and technical requirements with the right combination of cloud and on-premises deployments for your needs. Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) delivery goes far beyond traditional virtualisation. Virtual Machine Scale Sets enable rapid deployments with true auto-scaling for modern workloads. Consistent Azure platform as a service (PaaS) capabilities bring hybrid deployment choice and portability to cloud applications. Run fully-managed PaaS, serverless computing, distributed microservices architectures and container management on-premises.
