Microsoft: Servicing Azure Stack using the Update resource provider

In today’s world, security is paramount. Microsoft is committed to ensuring your Azure Stack environment stays both secure and functional – as it delivers consistency to build and deploy applications using the same approach, APIs, DevOps tools, and portal, as you use for Azure.

Azure Stack operators must be able to safely and reliably update their Azure Stack infrastructure, while at the same time, provide highly-available, mission-critical services to their customers. Updates can range in scope from software to firmware, across core components of the system. The update process must be easy and predictable, allowing customers to focus on other aspects of their business.

Challenges How do Azure Stack operators determine where to download updates, how to apply them, what order to apply them in, who to call if there is problem, ensure minimal disruptions or determine maintenance window durations? Enter the Update resource provider, an integral part of Azure Stack.

What we built Azure Stack has a built-in, dependency-aware orchestration engine that allows Azure Stack operators to import, run and monitor updates for Azure Stack. No additional tooling, internet connectivity or integration is required. Operators simply download the updates for Azure Stack, then import and run them using the Update tile in the Administrator portal during a pre-defined maintenance window. The fully-native Update resource provider will ensure updates are applied across all physical hosts, Service Fabric applications and runtimes, as well as all infrastructure roles.
