Body:

Our product utilizes Azure compute, network, and storage services along with the corresponding Azure SDKs. While Azure Stack Hub documentation clearly states the ability to develop in the public cloud and deploy to the Hub, we haven't found a definitive answer regarding Azure Stack HCI.

Questions:

  1. Is there a list of services supported by Azure Stack HCI? Specifically, are compute, network, and storage services offered on Azure Cloud available on Azure Stack HCI as well?
  2. Will the following Azure SDK APIs be supported on Azure Stack HCI?
    • azure.mgmt.network
      • azure.mgmt.compute
        • azure.identity
          • azure.storage.blob
            • msrestazure.azure_exceptions
  3. What is the metadata server URL for Azure Stack HCI? (Assuming there's a metadata server similar to Azure Cloud)
Azure Stack HCI
Azure Stack HCI
A hyperconverged infrastructure operating system delivered as an Azure service that provides security, performance, and feature updates.

    Hello, @Priyanka Nawale !

    Is there a list of services supported by Azure Stack HCI?

    I've reached out to the Azure Stack HCI team but so far the list is mostly a collection of references made in the documentation:

    This includes:

    • Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD)
    • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
    • SQL Server
    • Storage
    • Azure Arc/Arc VMs
    • Azure Backup
    • Azure Site Recovery
    • Azure Update Manager

    There is a more inclusive list from Surbhi (Microsoft Employee):

    • Virtual Machines: Windows & Linux VMs
    • Containers
    • IoT Edge Runtime
    • AKS on HCI
    • Azure Services in Containers
    • Azure Stream Analytics
    • SQL / SQL DB Edge
    • Azure Functions
    • Azure Event Grid
    • Logic Apps
    • API Management
    • Azure Cognitive Services
    • Azure ML
    • Hyper-V / Software Defined Networking/ Storage Spaces Direct
    • Tightly integrated with:
      • Azure Monitor
      • Azure Site Recovery
      • Azure Backup
      • Azure Network Adapter
      • Cloud Witness
      • Azure Update Management
      • Azure File Sync
      • Azure Security Center

    Will the following Azure SDK APIs be supported on Azure Stack HCI?

    Below you can find .NET and Python Azure Stack HCI SDK references:

    What is the metadata server URL for Azure Stack HCI?

    Azure Stack HCI uses Azure verification for VMs, which is modeled after the IMDS (Azure Instance Metadata Service) attestation. Arc for Servers uses *.his.arc.azure.com and port 443 for metadata:

    Azure verification for VMs makes it possible for supported Azure-exclusive workloads to work outside of the cloud. This feature, modeled after the IMDS attestation service in Azure, is a built-in platform attestation service that is enabled by default on Azure Stack HCI 23H2 or later. It helps to provide guarantees for these VMs to operate in other Azure environments. For more information about the previous version of this feature on Azure Stack HCI, version 22H2 or earlier, see Azure Benefits on Azure Stack HCI.
