Microsoft Azure Stacks up new reasons for hybrid cloud

Awesome news for fans of hybrid cloud! The much-anticipated Azure Stack hybrid cloud platform, which will allow Microsoft customers to run Azure public cloud in their own IT environment, is now available for trial in Australia.

Azure Stack simplifies hybrid deployments by integrating customer IT and private cloud with resources in the Azure cloud through a single interface or APIs. On-demand scaling between Azure Stack and Azure means workloads can be deployed based on business requirements.

Get ready to rumble!

The Azure Stack Development Kit is now available from Microsoft, so Australian partners can now begin designing solutions incorporating private, secure, high-speed connectivity to Azure via ExpressRoute.

The first Azure Stack systems will be available this September in pay-as-you-use or capacity-based models.

NEXTDC is ready and waiting to advise our customers on how to build native ExpressRoute connectivity into Azure and beat the drum for the true benefits of cloud + colocation.
