  • Design | Upstream of the project, with a collaborative approach, Orange Business designs an optimized solution, tailored to the customer's needs and associated with the best components on the market. The design takes into account the history, maturity and projection of the customer to define the most appropriate infrastructure sizing.

  • Proof of Concept | Orange Business has its own permanent Azure Stack HCI infrastructure installed in our laboratories dedicated to testing. This allows us to test and validate all Azure Stack HCI developments and updates before deploying them to our customers. And more than that, our clients can test their own use-cases.

  • Migration | An essential step in an IT transformation project is to migrate existing workloads from the current architecture to the new Azure Stack HCI service. Orange Business experts provide the necessary support and tools to accompany the client or we can take over the entire process.

  • Build, post-configuration and monitoring system enhancement | For solution implementation, Orange Business works in close relationship with Microsoft and the hardware vendor. Once the Azure Stack HCI servers are deployed, Orange Business takes over from the vendor to configure the Azure Stack solution to the customer's needs. We deliver the necessary security to this hybrid cloud solution, we provide the connectivity with Azure and make the service fully functional and integrated with customer’s IT. Our experts perfect the solution by implementing additional components to monitor and maintain the Azure Stack HCI infrastructure and the installed Azure services in operational condition. Among others, benefit from Orange Business skills to deploy and operate container orchestration (with Azure Kubernetes Service AKS) and cloud native services with Azure Arc.

  • Azure Stack HCI infrastructure Run | In close cooperation with Microsoft and the hardware vendor, we provide 24/7 support for the solution, including the maintenance in operational conditions of the Azure Stack HCI infrastructure, the incident and change management. Thanks to a fine-tuned management of Hardware and Software updates, Orange Business is able to ensure maximum performance and security to the solution.
