HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack is co-engineered and validated by HPE and Microsoft to provide enterprises and service providers a simplified development, management and security experience consistent with Azure public cloud services that they can run on-premises. Billing is simplified, because users only receive a single invoice instead of being billed by both HPE and Azure. The service will be free for all Azure customers and partners, Guthrie said.
