Expanding the Azure Stack partner ecosystem

We continue to expand our ecosystem by partnering with independent software vendors (ISV) around the globe to deliver prepackaged software solutions to Azure Stack customers. As we are getting closer to our two-year anniversary, we are humbled by the trust and confidence bestowed by our partners in the Azure Stack platform. We would like to highlight some of the partnerships that we built during this journey.

Security

Thales now offers their CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager solution through the Azure Stack Marketplace that works with Azure and Azure Stack “Bring Your Own Key” (BYOK) APIs to enable such key control. CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager creates Azure-compatible keys from the Vormetric Data Security Manager that can offer up to FIPS 140-2 Level 3 protection. Customers can upload, manage, and revoke keys, as needed, to and from Azure Key Vaults running in Azure Stack or Azure, all from a single pane of glass.

Enhancing Microsoft’s commercial marketplace for partners

As we head into the global partner conference Microsoft Inspire on July 14-18, 2019, a big focus is on rethinking how we make it easier for customers to discover, try, and buy cloud-based software and services from our partners. Today, we’re excited to announce new tools, commerce options, and a rewards program through the Microsoft commercial marketplace that help partners leverage this important distribution channel.

Commercial marketplace as a new distribution channel

Many people think of a commercial marketplace as a simple catalog of offer listings which are often difficult to navigate.  For customers, they are often linked off to a different experience for trial and purchase. Publishers and partner selling solutions are challenged by how to differentiate their solutions to stand out in the volume of offers.

We are working with our partner community to ensure the commercial marketplace experiences deliver a new distribution channel to drive their business growth. For example, Microsoft AppSource targets business decision makers while Azure Marketplace targets IT and developers. This includes having the commerce capabilities and solution supply to capture the rising customer demand in online enterprise software purchases.

Microsoft’s commercial marketplace has at its core, one product catalog, which includes both Microsoft

Azure Stack IaaS – part nine

This blog was co-authored by Aparna Vishwanathan, Senior Program Manager, Azure Stack and Tiberiu Radu, Senior Program Manager, Azure Stack.

Build on the success of others

Before we built Azure Stack, our program manager team called a lot of customers who were struggling to create a private cloud out of their virtualization infrastructure. I was surprised to learn that the few that managed to overcome the technical and political challenges of getting one set up had trouble getting their business units and developers to use it. It turns out they created what we now call a snowflake cloud, a cloud unique to just their organization. But their developers wanted what the same functionality they get in the public cloud, which is an ecosystem full of rich documentation, examples, templates, forums, demos, and more.

This is one of the main problems we were looking to solve with Azure Stack. A local cloud that has not only automated deployment and operations, but also is consistent with Azure so that developers and business units can tap into the ecosystem. In this blog post I will cover the different ways you can tap into the Azure ecosystem to get the most value out of
