Enabling hybrid cloud with HPE and Microsoft Azure Stack

Diana_Z

HPE Discover London 2016 was a great opportunity to inform customers interested the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack solution with Microsoft. HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack, built on the world’s best-selling server (the HPE ProLiant DL380), is a factory-integrated and tested solution by both Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Microsoft that allows customers to easily move applications between Azure public cloud and Azure Stack running in their data center. However, HPE understands that not all customers were able to make it to Discover London and recorded several sessions for further viewing. One of the recorded sessions was “Enabling hybrid cloud with HPE and Microsoft Azure Stack”, presented by Michael Tan, Director of Product Management.

In this session, Tan introduces the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack, compares the value of Azure Stack and Azure Pack, explains the hardware and networking configurations and concludes how HPE can help customers get started with the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack.

In the video, Tan explains that the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack is a “plug and play” appliance because HPE has removed the complexity of configuring the hardware and software and has provided customers with the following benefits:

  • A fast, easy deployment experience with an Azure Stack integrated solution
  • Simpler management through a single pane of glass for Azure, Azure Stack and traditional IT
  • Secure cloud services with data-centric security and security monitoring for Azure, Azure Stack and traditional IT
  • Greater financial flexibility through pay-as-you-go pricing and unified billing options
  • Hybrid cloud expertise to help customers plan and implement an Azure hybrid cloud
  • Single vendor support for both Azure Pack and Azure Stack services

Tan also educates viewers on the difference between Azure Pack and Azure Stack. As he explains, “Azure Pack is a natural progression and the first Azure simulated experience for customers using Windows Server and System Center.” In contrast, customers that are ready for the real Azure experience, seeking the capability to develop once and the “choice” to deploy in different places should consider Azure Stack for a “true hybrid cloud solution”.

Tan also explains how customers can develop once and deploy in a private or public cloud through the hardware and networking configuration for the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack. During this section, he demonstrates the simplicity in the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Stack solution.

Finally, Tan communicates the various ways to get started with the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack:

  1. Schedule a workshop to find out how you can get started today
  2. Sign up for services and support to help you install and manage an HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack
  3. Visit an HPE Microsoft Innovation Center to experience the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack solution

Watch the full session below to learn the specifics behind the joint HPE and Microsoft hybrid cloud solution that is consistent with Azure Public Cloud via HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack.
