AOS in Norway have been participating in the Azure Stack Early Adaption Initiative (EAI previously called TAP) from the very beginning 3 years ago. It was decided very early on that AOS in Norway should deliver Azure Stack to their customers to two main reasons:
1) Customers are curious about Azure and the capabilities it can provide, but they are not comfortable to put all the workload outside their country borders;
2) The strategic choice to be the technological leader – customers want to see that Atea can give them relevant advices now and in the future;
And now we are happy to have Azure Stack in production!
The built in automation makes it effective to implement and operate in the customer environments, while the customer portal has the same look and feel as the Azure portal, and makes it easy for the customer to provision new servers and services. And to make it even more appealing the pay by use as Azure makes it cost effective and easily scalable for customers.
