Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft, today announced the upcoming availability of a complete Microsoft Azure Stack solution from a single provider. This new Azure Stack solution from Avanade will offer an Azure-consistent experience at a competitive price point. It is also fully-managed and can be purchased in a consumption-based or pre-purchased pricing model. Avanade can also deliver Azure Stack on-premises at the client site, at remote locations or hosted in Avanade’s datacenters. They are also planning to offer it through Accenture’s Cloud Platform later this year.
Azure Stack, an extension of Azure to on-premises environments, enables a true hybrid IT cloud model. The complete set of Azure hybrid capabilities includes uniformity across identity, security & management, data, and application platforms.
“Avanade is excited to help enterprises speed their journey to the cloud with a flexible, fully managed Azure-consistent solution where and when they need it. Organizations will be able to experience the benefits of the Microsoft cloud with the agility and control they need,” said Rich Stern, Executive, Global Market Units and Cloud, Avanade.
Mike Neil, Corporate Vice President, Azure Infrastructure Management, Microsoft Corporation added, “Avanade is a valued Azure Stack partner, giving our clients the benefits of Azure in hybrid environments while providing valuable input and expertise to help improve the platform. We look forward to delivering on the promise of hybrid cloud together.”
