MICROSOFT'S AZURE STACK HCI: A NEW OPTION FOR RUNNING VIRTUALIZED APPS THAT CONNECT TO AZURE
Microsoft is adding a new family member to its Azure Stack hybrid product line-up. On March 26, Microsoft took the wraps off Azure Stack HCI Solutions for running virtualized applications on hyperconverged infrastructure. Officials said that Azure Stack HCI is "an evolution of Windows Server Software-Defined (WSSD) solutions previously available from our hardware partners." It's now part of the Azure Stack family because it now can connect to Azure. Microsoft introduced in 2017 its Azure Stack hybrid computing platform. Azure Stack enables customers and partners to run Azure services on-premises on a handful of preapproved servers from OEMs. Azure Stack HCI Solutions allows customers to run virtualized applications on-premises while replacing and consolidating their older servers. With both Azure Stack and Azure Stack HCI, customers can connect to Microsoft's Azure public cloud if they so choose. Azure Stack HCI Solutions offers the same compute, storage and networking technology as Azure Stack does. It also allows users to view their Azure Stack HCI and Azure services via the Windows Admin Center. MARY JO FOLEY READ MORE
