Use a consistent environment to improve development efficiency

Regardless of whether applications run on Azure or Azure Stack, developers can build and deploy them the same way, thereby maximizing productivity.

  • Unified tools—use the same Azure Resource Manager application deployment mode, self-service portal and APIs.
  • Common DevOps—perform continuous deployment and integration using Jenkins and Visual Studio Team Services, and automate using Chef and Azure PowerShell DSC extensions.
  • Open source—use a broad range of open-source technologies, including Java, Python, Node.js, PHP, Docker-integrated containers, Mesosphere DC/OS and Cloud Foundry.

Cloud applications that meet various regulatory requirements

In a global deployment environment, different instances of the same application can be hosted on Azure or Azure Stack, depending on your business and technology needs. Develop and deploy applications on Azure or use Azure Stack for the flexible implementation of local deployments, to meet specific regulatory or policy requirements without having to change any code.

Locally implemented cloud application mode

On Azure Stack, use Azure Web applications, mobile services, container services, serverless computing and microservices architectures to update and extend existing applications while using a consistent DevOps process in the cloud and during local deployments. In large and core business process applications, use Azure and Azure Stack’s hybrid cloud environments to meet constantly changing requirements.
