Azure Stack TP3 and Marketplace Syndication Functionality


Azure Marketplace

On the heels of the release of Azure Stack Technical Preview 3 (TP3) earlier this month, KEMP is super-excited to announce that we’re on the (very) short list of solutions currently available to all testers through the new Marketplace Syndication functionality.  Having worked with the Azure Stack team since TP1, we have been able to tune and tweak Virtual LoadMaster for Azure to work on Azure Stack too.  Now it’s your turn to kick the tires and help us test our new Azure Stack solution in the process.

Marketplace Syndication is a new feature of Azure Stack that lets you add solutions from the public Azure Marketplace to your Azure Stack environment with the click of a button.  Check out the following video which demos Marketplace Syndication, how to enable it and also easily download and deploy KEMP’s Azure Stack VLM into your lab environment.

Please note that our Azure Stack build is (like Azure Stack itself) still in preview, so please only use it for testing purposes.  Our support teams have been prepped to handle calls regarding the build but are not yet Azure Stack gurus, so go easy on them.  Finally, the Azure Stack build comes with a 60-day trial license that can be extended if necessary.  Please contact me if you have any questions or need a license extension.
