Today, we are excited to announce preview releases of Azure PaaS services for Azure Stack and a refresh to Azure Stack TP3. Last month, we released Azure Stack TP3 and provided additional information about hybrid use cases, the pay-as-you-use business model for Azure Stack, and roadmap updates. If you haven’t already, read Jeffrey Snover’s Azure Stack TP3 blog post for more context. Additionally, we put together a whitepaper with an even more detailed roadmap of Azure services, integrated systems details, and initial geo-availability.
This update continues delivering Azure Services on premises so customers can create innovative applications for the hybrid cloud. Specifically, this release includes:

New to App Service this release:

  • Azure Functions preview for AAD based deployments
  • Deployment in disconnected environments
  • Deployment on ADFS authenticated Azure Stack
  • Installation and deployment improvements
  • Azure Resource Manager (ARM) API version 2016-03-01 support for App Services
  • Synchronization of SKUs with Azure – i.e. Free (F1), Shared (D1), and Standard (S1, S2, S3)
  • Service reliability improvements

Azure Stack TP3 refresh: Based on feedback and several ongoing improvements/bug fixes, we’ve also updated the Azure Stack TP3 software for a better deployment and operational experience. A list of the latest features and improvements to Azure Stack TP3 is now available.

Important Note: If you have already deployed Azure Stack TP3, you will need to redeploy using the updated software before deploying the Azure PaaS services.

Visit our Azure Stack technical documentation page to guide your deployment efforts and look at the documentation for App Service and Functions, SQL, and MySQL.
