Azure Stack is a recent offering from Microsoft that aims to recreate IaaS and PaaS capabilities in the public cloud (pools of compute, storage, and networking that can be easily consumed by developers and applications) in your own data center.
One goal of Azure Stack is to enable the fabled hybrid cloud, in which developers can use the same tools and processes to write applications and run workloads either on premises or in the Azure public cloud. As today’s guest puts it, Azure Stack is meant to be an extension of Azure.
Today on the Datanauts, we unpack Azure Stack to get a closer look at its primary components, explore the rationale for adopting Azure Stack, look at integrated systems that support it (and are required to run Azure Stack), and point listeners to resources to let them play around with the technology.
