ZNetLive (www.znetlive.com), a web hosting and cloud services provider, said it has made available Microsoft Azure Stack – Microsoft’s platform for the hybrid cloud, to businesses of all sizes with complete deployment and operational support.
This will enable enterprises to seamlessly implement and manage their data in a hybrid cloud environment while realizing its full potential with benefits like agility, scalability, and flexibility, irrespective of their size or cloud expertise of their IT staff.
Azure Stack provides a secure way to enterprises who wish to use Azure public cloud but reasons like data criticality, compliance, and data accessibility prevent them from doing so. An extension of Microsoft Azure platform, it helps them to implement same capabilities that Azure public cloud offers, within their own data centers, on premise. It provides them a secure way to have control over their data that’s safe within their boundaries, behind all their security software. This helps them get the benefits of both the public and private cloud worlds.
Microsoft announced the Azure Stack’s ready to order availability in the recently concluded Microsoft partner event – Microsoft Inspire. “We have delivered Azure Stack software to our hardware partners, enabling us to begin the certification process for their integrated systems, with the first systems to begin shipping in September,” said Mike Neil, Corporate VP, Azure Infrastructure, and Management, said in his blog post.
“Azure Stack is another step by Microsoft in fulfilling its Digital Transformation goals. ZNetLive has always been among the forerunners in bringing the Digital transformation technologies to the end customers and thus, we decided to offer dedicated support services for Microsoft Azure Stack, while attending Microsoft Inspire in Washington D.C, itself.
With Microsoft, we take our next step in creating a digitally transformed world,” said Munesh Jadoun, Founder & CEO, ZNetLive.
“We have been working with Microsoft Azure for a long time now. Before Microsoft Azure Stack, we used System Center 2012 R2 product suite to create private cloud environments for our customers. This led to an increase in costs due to hardware, licensing, maintenance, upgrades etc.
But now with Azure Stack, we’ll be able to provide our customers the same Azure capabilities in their own data centers at much lesser prices. Since the intuitive interface of Azure Stack is same as that of Azure, the team will be at ease creating VMs, cloud databases and other Azure cloud services with no additional training,” said Bhupender Singh, Chief Technical Officer, ZNetLive.
