    Azure Stack enables you to run Azure workloads on-premises or even within a colocation facility, enabling stronger security and control over your data and applications with a single management platform for your public Azure cloud infrastructure and your Azure Stack deployment.

    You can use many of the best Azure tools, processes, and features — including add-ons and open source solutions from the Azure Marketplace — in the cloud of your choice, helping to meet regulatory or technical challenges.

    Before you get started with this intriguing hybrid and private cloud technology from Microsoft, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind, however. Here are some of the most important.

    On-Premise Hardware
    Azure DevOps On Premise is offered as an integrated hardware and software package, with the Azure platform pre-installed on specific hardware. Whether you choose a service provider or your own on-premises deployment of Azure stack, Microsoft-certified hardware is necessary.

    Vendors include HPE, Cisco, Dell EMC, Lenovo, Huawei, and a few others. Expect to spend the same amount as you might on a rack of pretty beefy servers. Be sure to size your hardware accordingly to the workloads you plan to run on-premises vs. in the public Azure cloud. High capacity and high performance is more necessary for analytics or heavy data processing, while many standard enterprise applications could run on relatively lower end hardware.

    Capacity planning is important as well. Eventually your Azure Stack hardware might reach capacity. You can then move workloads that don’t require additional security or performance controls out to the public cloud, or you can add additional hardware.

    In the case of choosing a service provider for private Azure Stack clouds, you won’t need to worry about the hardware — it will all be included in your contract.
