Azure To Move To Hybrid Cloud Environments

Microsoft had huge success with Azure (cloud computing platform). Now Microsoft is taking steps to move Azure into hybrid cloud environments with the announcement of the general availability of Azure Stack, an extension of Azure.

Microsoft's hardware partners, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell EMC and Lenovo, will ship Azure Stack with their hardware systems. Microsoft is pricing Azure Stack using pay-as-you-go use and capacity-based models.


Microsoft is also making available an Azure Stack Development Kit for building and deploying applications for Azure hybrid cloud environments. Microsoft is offering a free single-server deployment option of the SDK for trial purposes.


Lastly, when you think about who you partner with long term, you have to partner with those who invest, and change, and lead-and Microsoft has once again proven that this is them and working with a goal of increasing partner profitability and accelerating business growth.
