The best of both: Azure Stack HCI from Dell and Microsoft

Modernise IT infrastructure, combine virtualised workloads, and increase flexibility with Microsoft Azure Stack HCI: an efficient, all-in-one validated hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) system created – in partnership – by Dell and Microsoft.

Dell and Microsoft technology works in unison to achieve modernisation. Together they provide secure, innovative, and scalable solutions to help you reach your digital transformation goals. Data centre infrastructure is an essential component of the modern workplace and a hybrid cloud approach empowers you to select the ideal location for your data.

Azure Stack HCI is a Dell EMC Integrated HCI system delivered as an Azure service. It leverages an integrated foundation from Dell Technologies and the power of the cloud to provide the latest security, performance, and hybrid capabilities.

Designed with full-stack lifecycle management and native Azure integration, the solution combines on-premise infrastructure with Azure cloud services to deliver efficient operations and flexible consumption models.

This hybrid approach benefits from the expertise of both Dell and Microsoft’s specialist areas and enables organisations to simplify deployment, strengthen security, boost IT productivity, and reduce costs.
