Microsoft Azure Stack
An extension of Azure to consistently build and run hybrid applications across cloud boundaries
Azure innovation anywhere
Intelligent cloud, intelligent edge. Extend Azure services and capabilities on-premises, and build, deploy, and operate hybrid cloud and edge applications consistently across Azure and Azure Stack. Azure Stack is sold as an integrated system of software and validated hardware.
Your cloud, your way. Run your own autonomous cloud, completely or partially disconnected from the internet and public cloud. Operate Azure Stack yourself or with the help of a trusted managed service provider. Either way, you control access to your data.
Edge and disconnected solutions
Run Azure Stack at the edge for remote locations or intermittent connectivity, run it disconnected from the internet, or create hybrid solutions—process data locally in Azure Stack and then aggregate it in Azure for additional processing and analytics.
Cloud applications that meet regulatory requirements
Meet your speci?c regulatory or policy requirements with full ?exibility to deploy on-premises using Azure Stack—without changing any code.
Legacy systems modernization
Apply a consistent DevOps process, Azure web services, containers, serverless computing, and microservices architectures to update and extend your legacy data locked in mainframe and core business process applications.
Consistent tools, experiences, and application models
Easily transfer your skills and processes between Azure clouds while using the tools you want. Maximize productivity by building and deploying 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 with Azure Resource Manager.
- Common DevOps. Experience continuous deployment and integration using Jenkins and Azure DevOps, and automation using Chef and Azure PowerShell DSC extensions.
- Open source. Use a broad range of open source technologies, including Java, Python, Node.js, PHP, Kubernetes containers, and Cloud Foundry.
Run the same Azure services across cloud boundaries
Meet your business and technical requirements by using the right combination of cloud and on-premises deployments for your needs.
Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) delivery goes far beyond traditional virtualization. Use Virtual Machine Scale Sets for rapid deployments with true autoscaling 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.
