An Inside Look at HPE Microsoft Azure Stack Innovation Center

For over 30 years, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have co-engineered cutting edge solutions, enabling customers to go above and beyond their business goals. The most recent joint solution, HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack, is a fully integrated hybrid cloud solution that enables customers to run Azure-consistent services on-premises and in the cloud.asic.jpg To accelerate the move to hybrid cloud, HPE and Microsoft have opened multiple HPE-Microsoft Azure Stack Innovation Centers (ASICs). At the ASICs, organizations work directly with technical experts to strategize, architect, and try out Microsoft Azure Stack running on the latest industry‑leading HPE hardware.

Feedback from recent visitors: 

“The workshop and POC at the HPE-Microsoft Azure Stack Innovation center allowed us to work with experts to envision how we could use Azure stack. It helped us move quickly from concept to reality. We can now offer Indonesian enterprises a hybrid cloud platform that supports Microsoft Azure services and capabilities from our local data centers, meeting Indonesian enterprises data sovereignty and compliance regulations.” – Sutedjo Tjahjadi, Managing Director, Datacomm Cloud Business

“The ASIC team provided us a product overview and then gave us the opportunity to try out Azure Stack PaaS functionality with a one week Proof of concept in which we accessed an Azure Stack multi-node remotely. This POC provided us with an outstanding way to get hands-on experience with Azure Stack without taking the time to install it in our own environment, allowing us to quickly move forward with our Azure Stack plans. We now provide Hybrid cloud for running Microsoft Azure- consistent workloads hosted in local data centers”- Chee Voon Wong, Managing Director, Peering One.

HPE-Microsoft Azure Stack Innovation Centers are located around the world in locations including:

  • Bellevue, Washington
