Cisco is expanding its Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) Solutions portfolio by offering Microsoft Azure Stack on Cisco UCS via an integrated, validated system that enables organizations to deliver Microsoft Azure services from their on-premises data centers. The joint Cisco and Microsoft solution provides the tools for enterprises to grow and modernize their applications in a highly flexible and scalable hybrid cloud environment.

As businesses evolve in response to changing market dynamics, they look for a simple-to-manage hybrid cloud solution that is intelligent and flexible enough to optimize resources and scale on demand, while retaining on-premises benefits. Through Azure Stack, customers receive a solution providing full control over how they manage governance, security, and performance through the combination of Microsoft's robust Azure cloud platform with the industry-leading Cisco UCS into an integrated system designed specifically for cloud workloads.

The Cisco Integrated System for Azure Stack reinforces Cisco's complete approach to cloud, offering customers the freedom to choose the best environments and consumption models for their traditional and cloud-native applications.
