#Microsoft ‘s #Azure-inspired private cloud offering will ship in mid-2017 as preintegrated hardware offerings from #Dell, #HPE and #Lenovo. Customers hoping to spin up a piece of Microsoft’s cloud in their own data centers will have a little longer to wait, the company announced on July 12. After releasing the Azure Stack Technical Preview software on Jan. 29, Mike Neil, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Enterprise Cloud division, said his company gathered feedback. In the months since early testers have been putting the software through its paces, Microsoft came to the conclusion that customers value a fast, uncomplicated and dependable deployment process over installing and configuring Azure Stack systems themselves. “To best meet these requirements, we will prioritize delivering Azure Stack as turnkey integrated systems in the initial general availability (GA) release, combining software, hardware, support and services in one solution,” wrote Neil, in a blog post. “As we do this, we will leverage our deep experience in both cloud and enterprise datacenter environments to optimize the customer experience.”
