Hi Folks, Normally we stick to the technical stuff here, but today we're cross posting some Avanade news: We are excited to announce that Avanade is making available access to Azure Stack Technical Preview 2 in our labs, so you can quickly test the new technology no set-up required. Microsoft Azure Stack is a new hybrid cloud platform that enables organizations to deliver Azure services from their own datacenter. We know many of you are excited to try it out, but may not be ready to commit to buying hardware to run it on yet.. With our new offering, you can run Azure Stack in the Avanade-hosted Azure Stack Labs, and we’ll take care of the planning and hardware acquisition.
We have a limited number of openings for clients to test a dedicated Azure Stack TP2 environment. These environments are hosted and supported by Avanade and are provided in lengths of four week segments. Each environment is a preconfigured dedicated instance, allowing you to immediately test advanced scenarios. “Avanade has been a key partner on the Azure Stack journey and this platform provides our joint customers a chance to test Azure Stack almost instantly,” said Mark Jewett, Senior Director of Cloud Platform Marketing at Microsoft.
