This highly practical guide is like a checklist of best practices for deploying Azure Stack and running applications in a hybrid environment. The journey starts even before the Azure Stack integrated system is delivered to your datacenter and continues after deployment with practices for maximizing the availability, resiliency, scalability, and security of the workloads you run.
Azure Stack is an extension of Microsoft Azure. It offers a consistent cloud management experience, deployment model, and Azure compute, storage, and networking services. However, unlike the public cloud Azure platform, Azure Stack offers all these services from your existing on-premises datacenters. Azure Stack provides a great choice when you must comply with data residency requirements and run your applications in an on-premises environment, or if you just want to make the most of your existing datacenter investment. Azure Stack gives you the advantage of the familiar Azure operating model.
