There’s no question that Microsoft Azure is experiencing tremendous growth as organizations are turning to this fast-moving, rapidly developing, hybrid cloud platform to deliver IT and business services from their data center.
What options do these organization have when they need to deliver those services beyond a traditional data center to rugged, tactical or unusual edge environments? The Dell EMC Tactical System for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub, or “Tactical Azure,” is the first and only hybrid cloud platform that is designed to deliver complete Azure Stack Hub capabilities to tactical, remote and harsh edge environments. One of the key benefits of Tactical Azure is that it is identical to a standard, back office, Azure Stack Hub providing a familiar and consistent experience for deploying and managing Azure-based services in the field. The system is also designed to operate with or without network connectivity making it ideal for organizations looking to extend their Azure architecture across their entire operations, on premises or at the edge.
Ideal for organizations that require a platform that adds significant PCIe capabilities – and the diversity, flexibility and innovation of the PCIe ecosystem – to their complex, compute and storage intensive workloads, including cyber security, virtual modeling and virtual reality, manufacturing, oil and gas, financial modeling and trading, education, academic research and transportation.
Resources Tactical Azure was developed and engineered through an exclusive partnership with Dell Technologies and is based on Dell EMC PowerSwitch networking switches and Dell EMC PowerEdge servers.
The platform has been optimized for mobile deployments and meets MIL-STD 810g for shock and vibe isolation. Built for Dell Technologies by Tracewell, Tactical Azure delivers all of the benefits of a standard Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure and its core components are identical to the Dell EMC all-flash Data Center Azure Stack Hub offering.
Tactical Azure is available through Dell Technologies as part of the company’s standard portfolio of Azure Stack offerings.
