Delivering Modern Applications with Azure Stack

Accelerate Your Digital Transformation with Dell Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack

Many vendors in the cloud world are trying to approach the challenge of providing an easy way to deploy applications on-premises in a private cloud as well as off-premises into a public cloud. Microsoft’s approach is to provide a common interface, development framework, and automation engine to deploy applications either in the public cloud with Azure or in the private, on-premises cloud with their Azure Stack solution. The industry response, unsurprisingly, has been largely positive.

Being able to develop an application once and deploy it anywhere without needing to modify or re-work it is a key value proposition of Azure Stack. This capability makes Azure Stack popular not only for customers who already are heavy consumers of Azure public but also service providers who are looking to offer Azure services to their customers.

Dell Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack solution enables customers to run Azure Stack software on Dell hardware

Azure Stack can provide an ‘easy button’ for those that already use Microsoft Azure and the many cloud services that it provides. Organizations don’t need to train their developers on new tools or IT administrators/operators on a new system they have to manage and maintain. Azure Stack provides agility to organizations that are looking to deploy new applications quickly and consistently across their organization and to their customers.

Here at Dell, we offer our Dell Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack solution to enable our customers to run the powerful Azure Stack software on proven Dell hardware. Our solution also goes beyond simply providing a hardware platform on which to run the Azure Stack software. We enable our customers to provide a complete cloud solution to their customers or end users.

To do this, we:

  • Deliver a hardware platform that is fully tested and integrated with the Azure Stack software to provide a fully functional, supported, and trusted cloud platform.
  • Integrate our own industry leading solutions for things like data protection and security directly into the solution to provide additional functionality to meet our customer’s business objectives.
  • Provide our experienced Consulting team who can customize the solution for our customers.

Dell and Microsoft are holding a series of events to help our customers better understand the capabilities of Azure Stack and start thinking about how they may adopt it in their own environments. These events will cover an overview of the solution, potential use cases for the Azure Stack platform, and then a live demo of the Azure Stack solution. Our Consulting team (myself included) will be at these events talking about how we can help customers deploy their modern applications on a fully automated and integrated Azure Stack cloud.

I truly hope you can make it out to one of these upcoming events to see the power of Azure Stack and what it can bring to your organization.
