Azure Stack as part of a hybrid strategy
A hybrid solution is characterised by combining the best features of various infrastructures. The advantages of this type of strategy include cost savings, e.g. with low-cost cloud resources as needed, faster response times or lower development costs.
Whatever you want to achieve with your hybrid strategy, Azure Stack at PlusServer is the perfect complement to your hosted dedicated resources or private cloud. It supplements the infrastructure provided for basic loads with flexible resources for load overflow, as a development or test environment, and has numerous SaaS offers.
The diagram shows how Azure Stack is the perfect building block to incorporate into any hybrid strategy. Regardless of whether compliance requires cloud resources from German data centres, or whether ready-made PaaS offers are to be accessed. Azure Stack fulfils virtually all requirements for hybrid or multi-cloud scenarios.

Why Azure Stack?
Azure Stack is a new cloud offer from Microsoft. The basic idea is based on making the entire range of Microsoft cloud services available in local data centres. Companies who have previously not been able to use the cloud for compliance reasons can now access it without hesitation. Because the hardware’s location is known - whether it is in the company’s own data centre or in that of a German cloud provider. In addition to computing resources, Azure Stack offers the same range of PaaS and SaaS offers as the global Microsoft cloud.
With Azure Stack at PlusServer, you enjoy not only the full range of functionality with the highest levels of compliance, but can also rely on management and personalised support from experienced experts. We help you to integrate Azure Stack into your IT infrastructure and benefit from the best of all worlds with a hybrid solution.
