CoLoCity looked for a solution that offered hybrid cloud capabilities to meet the concerns of local businesses and address industry regulations. Ideally, the offering would be able to support an eventual adoption of public cloud services at a later date. We wanted a solution to support digital transformation while inspiring confidence in customers. It needed to be a service that came fully supported and offered the highest levels of security and reliability. We discussed our aims with Dell Technologies and Microsoft teams, whose solutions run in its colocation data center. They then proposed taking advantage of the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub. The solution offers a hybrid cloud platform with the performance of a Dell Technologies hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and uses Windows software-defined storage and Azure networking tools. This enables scaling to support the needs of even the most intensive workloads. As a Dell Technologies Cloud Service Provider, being able to offer Microsoft Azure Stack Hub to customers was a big opportunity. We’re committed to helping customers address.
the changing needs of IT environments and deliver as-a-service solutions, both on-premises and off. Our objective is to manage and simplify the growing complexity of multi-cloud platforms and deliver transformative outcomes through a consistent infrastructure and operating model.”

It was particularly interesting in the modularity of the architecture. We were able to start with just a few HCI nodes, as we introduced the service to the market and generated interest. Because of the modularity of Microsoft Azure Stack Hub, we can scale the infrastructure as more customers come onboard.
