What is Azure and Azure Stack?

Azure is a cloud-computing platform developed by Microsoft to create, test, manage, and deploy cloud-related applications and services.

Azure Stack

Azure Stack is an extension of Azure. With the help of Azure Stack, we can run services provided by Azure on our data centera space allocated to house computer systems and associated components such as telecommunications and storage systems.

Azure Stack integrates services with our Datacenter

What is Azure Stack HCI?

Azure Stack HCI is a new Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) operating system hosted as an Azure service.

Microsoft’s Azure Stack HCI platform ensures a secure virtualizationthe act of creating a virtual version of something, including virtual computer hardware platforms, storage devices, and computer network resources. platform for both Windows and Linux guests.

Azure Stack HCI provides services such as:

  • up-to-date security features
  • great performance
  • feature updates
Services offered by Azure Stack HCI

We can deploy and run Windows and Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) in our datacenter using Azure Stack HCI.

This also allows us to extend our Datacenter to the cloud using:

  • Azure Monitor
  • Azure Backup (VM backups)
  • Azure Security Center
  • Site recovery

Purpose of Azure Stack HCI

For an effective and efficient business plan, companies and organizations focus on adapting to the latest trends in technology.

An organization should use Azure Stack HCI and performing cloud-computing activities to do the following:

  • Reduce the workload while remaining on-premises.
  • Resolve latency issues.
  • Improve data sovereignty.
  • Fix high I/O (Input/Output) requirements.
Areas to focus on while using Azure Stack HCI

Building projects using Azure Stack HCI

Using Azure Stack HCI, we can build several cloud-based projects. This is ideal for both short-term and long-term projects.

Azure Stack HCI works well with multi-container projects developed in Python, Golang, PHP, Java, DotNet, and more.


Azure Stack HCI ultimately reduces the overall project cost, improves performance and availability, and simplifies operations.

The best part of Azure and similar cloud-computing services is that we can manage our project from anywhere, as it is available on the cloud.
