  • Question

  • I'm interested in deploying Azure Stack in our data center but I can't find information regarding high availability for an on-premise installation. Specifically, does Azure Stack have the ability to deployed across multiple resources. My desire is to deploy Azure Stack across a minimum of 5 servers and 2 SAN's. Azure stack will manage the available resources across these devices. Is this possible?

  • At this moment, it's only possible to deploy Azure Stack on single server. Multi-server option is not yet supported.

    It's only TP 1 so it probably will be available till GA, there has been a lot of takling about it but it's only logical that it will be possible to deploy across data centar.

    Edit: As this is only TP1, deploying now across data centar wouldn't be recommended, it's still test environment only.

  • Mustafa, thanks for the quick response. Do you know if there will be a licensing fee for the deployment of Azure Stack? As an example, say I deploy Azure Stack and only use local resources, no Azure cloud processing or storage. Do I have to pay a fee for the use of Azure Stack locally?

  • There still hasn't been any info about licensing model for Azure Stack.

    But running Azure Stack is in fact running VMs, so I believe that it will be covered under same licensing model like Hyper-V. If you run WS Datacentar, you can run as many VMs as you like or your server let's you.

    Again this is only my opinion on this metter as no official info has been released.
