Microsoft Launches Hybrid Cloud Offering for Azure Government - top government contractors - best government contracting eventMicrosoft has made its Azure Stack hybrid cloud offering available to Azure Government cloud platform users.

Natalia Mackevicius, program director for Azure Stack, wrote in a blog entry posted Monday the Azure Stack for Azure Government offering seeks to help government clients comply with data requirements by providing them access to the same set of DevOps tools, application programming interfaces and other cloud services they would get in the Azure public cloud.

The new offering also aims to help agencies build and deploy apps in both cloud platforms and transition between on-premises, government-only and public cloud environments based on mission requirements.

“With Azure Stack for Azure Government, agencies can bring core and advanced cloud services to the edge “” right to where they're needed, making it possible to process data in the field without worrying about latency or internet connectivity,“ Mackevicius noted.

The new cloud offering will work to help agencies upgrade their legacy apps on-premises without introducing changes to processes, code, people skills and DevOps tools as well as carry out intelligence collection and analytics in both networked and disconnected environments.

Microsoft has also completed a third-party assessment that allows it to offer the needed documentation to help agencies accelerate the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program high baseline certification for Azure Stack-based workloads.
