Azure Stack ecosystem
The power of platform
Grow your business and reach new customers with Azure Stack. Microsoft has long provided customers the flexibility to choose the right hardware for their software. Azure Stack expands that basic promise for the next generation of deployments. Applications run on Azure or Azure Stack depending on what is right for the business. The power of platform helps the entire IT ecosystem, from software developers through hardware manufacturers, confidently invest in their products, knowing that Microsoft is committed to their success.
Write Azure software
When you write Azure software the right way, your investments can be syndicated to any Azure Stack cloud that runs the required services. So you can increase adoption by making your solution available through the Azure Marketplace. Plus, continue to improve your applications by taking advantage of PaaS services that you know will be in other Azure Stack clouds.
Design, deploy, and operate Azure solutions
Hybrid applications solve problems in new ways. Imagine a single application that is distributed across clouds, but works the same way in each cloud. Azure Stack helps unlock new opportunities with customers who need a hybrid solution.
Deploy, customize, and operate Azure Stack
Every Azure Stack cloud is an opportunity for deployment of the system, customization of the capabilities, and operational activities that result in a long engagement with a customer to solve their particular cloud needs.
Operate Azure services in your datacenter
Run your own cloud, and monetize Azure services in your datacenter. Continue to grow your cloud business by adding additional Azure services as they become available. Curate and offer a catalog of Azure software for the services you deliver.
