Public cloud technologies are being adopted quickly to help businesses become more agile and flexible. However, many of the current workloads being run within data centres cannot be deployed off-premises, as public cloud demands, because of the need for control, performance, security, or user experience. Private cloud services are a way for businesses to bring the benefits of public cloud to a local deployment. However, private cloud deployments can be more complex, and the IT staff may not have the required skills to maintain a cloud in their datacenter.
Microsoft Azure Stack helps address this need by creating a private cloud where on- premises services look and act just like the Azure public cloud. Lenovo has developed the Lenovo ThinkAgile SX for Microsoft Azure Stack as a completely integrated turnkey solution that brings the power of the Azure cloud directly into the data centre. This solution combines the flexibility and agility of the public cloud with the control and security of a private solution.
