Microsoft courts USA government cloud users with Azure Stack integration promise

The offering is aimed at government agencies that require on-premise servers. One example: The recent granting of a $950 million contract to an AWS partner, Rean Cloud, by the Pentagon came under criticism from rivals such as Oracle Corp. for appearing to favor AWS, though Rean itself has said the contract does not specify AWS as the cloud provider.

Microsoft Azure Stack is a new hybrid cloud platform product that enables your organization to deliver Azure services from your own datacenter to help you achieve more.

In an effort to make Azure more appealing to government agencies, Microsoft will soon allow government clients to run its software on their own servers.

The combination of Azure Stack, Microsoft's localized cloud product, and Azure Government, a Microsoft version of the cloud that is customized for the governments.

Microsoft is looking to take on companies such as Amazon and IBM, which already offer tailored cloud programmes for governments around the world. For those who have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Azure Stack, the wait is nearly over, said Natalia Mackevicius, director of Azure Stack.

Moscow has also been denying allegations of trying to influence the USA presidential election. Russia does not extradite its citizens to anyone".


By offering government agencies the ability to utilise an on-premise version of its popular cloud services, Microsoft is allowing them to move their operations to the cloud while still remaining in control of sensitive data and information.

"Microsoft is already unique in providing consistent, comprehensive hybrid cloud capabilities to government, and we're advancing those capabilities by bringing Microsoft Azure Stack to Azure Government", Julia White, corporate vice president of Azure, said in a blog post, explaining Microsoft's decision. The two new regions can accommodate government data classified secrets, noted Keane.

Continuing with the announcements, Microsoft also said it's planning to make two new Azure Government regions available in the USA, bringing the total number to eight.

Because of this, government agencies will not have to rely on a public cloud service - meaning they can avoid having to connect over potentially insecure internet connections, with their data held and managed by a third party.

Microsoft's moves arrive amid intensifying competition among cloud providers seeking to grow their government customer bases.
