As for the latest development of their existing in-cloud service, Microsoft is bundling up a number of components for their cloud operating system into Azure Stack. This will help hosting service providers and larger businesses run the datacenters of customers.
The latest Azure Stack is actually a combination of vital cloud OS components like the Windows Server 2016, Azure Service Fabric and the Azure Pac, which itself contains a bunch of features for hosting services enabling users to use exclusive Windows Server and System Center features.
The Azure stack is somewhat an updated version of the OS available on the Microsoft’s Cloud Platform System.
As said by the general manager of Microsoft’s Cloud Platform Product Marketing, Mike Schutz, in the case of CPS, Hyper-V and Azure Pack were combined with hardware features. For the latest Azure stack all the tasks are done at the part of Microsoft, which will deliver on any hardware according to the choice of customers.
Azure Stack is believed to have great capabilities that will boost overall experience as it combines Windows server with Azure. It will include not only Hype-V and Scale Out File but also the latest networking and storage technologies expected to come with Windows Server 2016. The Azure Stack will include Azure portal, IaaS, and PaaS technologies.
According to reports, Microsoft will still continue to provide CPS systems for users; a version of CPS based on Windows Server 2016 is under process.
The Operations Management Suite recently released by Microsoft includes Operational insights, Azure site recovery, Azure automation, Azure Backup – all bundled together. Microsoft is now seriously thinking about stacking features of their services together for an even better service.
