Microsoft will integrate Azure Stack with Azure Government this year

In an effort to attract more government clients, Microsoft said it will integrate Azure Stack, its hybrid cloud platform, with Azure Government in the middle of this year. Azure Stack will let government agencies run Azure’s cloud computing platform on their own private servers while retaining access to Microsoft’s cloud services. This makes it easier for clients to protect sensitive data, including classified information, that need to be kept in on-premise servers, and be compliant with data regulations.

Microsoft Azure competes closely for public sector customers with Amazon Web Services, which had a head start because it signed a $600 million deal in 2013 to serve the Central Intelligence Agency, which John Edwards, the CIA’s chief information officer, described last year as the “best decision we ever made” because it allows the agency to work more efficiently and cut costs associated with maintaining legacy software.
