A hybrid cloud platform that lets you run Azure services on-premises – this is Azure Stack, an integrated and optimized system of software and matching hardware.
It combines IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) functionalities in a software stack that extends and enhances on-premises data center environments. You can now deliver Azure-based Cloud Services from your own data center, with fast application and service deployment using standard Azure tools and APIs.
Also, Azure Stack enables you to spread and integrate apps and services onto the public Azure cloud, for practically unlimited scalability.
