Microsoft Azure Stack is a new hybrid cloud platform product that enables your organization to deliver Azure services from your own datacenter to help you achieve more. Get the power of cloud services, yet maintain control of your datacenter for true hybrid cloud agility. You decide where to keep your data and applications—in your own datacenter or with a hosting service provider. Easily access public cloud resources to scale at busy times of the year, for dev-test, or whenever you need them. Only Microsoft builds and runs its own hyper-scale datacenters and delivers that proven innovation to your datacenter.
Azure CTO Mark Russinovich and Enterprise Cloud Technical Fellow Jeffrey Snover discuss how Microsoft Azure Stack can help you deliver the power of Azure in your datacenter.Watch now
Transform on-premises datacenter resources into cloud services for maximum agility. Run Azure infrastructure services—including Virtual Machines, Virtual Network, and blob/table storage—for applications like SQL Server or SharePoint. IT gets to control the on-premises service delivery experience. Empower developers to write cloud-first applications using on-premises deployments of Azure App Service and Docker-integrated containers. Make them productive with the same self-service experience as Azure.
Build and deploy your application the same way regardless of whether it runs on Azure or Azure Stack. Use Azure Resource Manager to build reusable application templates for both traditional and cloud-native apps. Use role-based access control in Azure Resource Manager and Azure Active Directory to enable fine-grained access to application resources. Write to the same Azure APIs. Use the same Azure SDK. Continue to use Visual Studio as your development canvas. Or use PowerShell to deploy if that’s what you prefer. Just like Azure, you get a broad choice of open source technologies including Linux, Java, Node.js, and PHP.
Jump-start your Azure Stack efforts with the rich Azure ecosystem. Applications and components designed for Azure will also work with Azure Stack—be it Azure Resource Manager templates, Windows Server/Linux VM images, or third-party services. Use GitHub to store and share templates in the Azure Stack gallery.
