SaaS for Azure Stack RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am currently testing Azure Stack ASDK and would like to know if there is a way to test Azure Functions and Azure SQL Databases.  Also, is it possible to use connections fron the outside like GitLab in the cloud to connect into our Azure Stack to deploy code.  These are all things we currently use in Azure and want to know if we will be losing anything.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

        you can deploy the Azure App Service on Azure Stack resource provider on ASDK this includes support for Web and API Apps and Azure Functions apps (v1 only currently) - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure-stack/operator/azure-stack-app-service-overview?view=azs-1910 

    Azure SQL DB is not available on Azure Stack Hub.  You can however deploy SQL Server in IaaS VMs.

    Thanks

  • Azure Functions and Azure SQL Databases can absolutely be tested on the ASDK. They do not come enabled out of the box, and the resource providers must be installed manually to be able to use the service. 

    You can use Azure Functions by installing the App Service Resource Provider Here

    Edit: Andrew above is correct, there is no Azure SQL DB available on Azure Stack. You can deploy SQL Databases as a service with SQL or MySQL, or use SQL Server in VM. 

    Connecting to the ASDK from outside sources can be difficult, and you will only be able to use an RDP connection or S2S VPN to connect to the ASDK. You can find more information Here about connecting to the ASDK. If you are using a computer that has a VPN connection to your ASDK, or using GitLab directly on the ASDK host, you will likely be able to deploy to the ASDK. You will find it very difficult to have the ASDK receive inbound connections from the internet.
