Microsoft updates Azure Stack preview

Microsoft has updated the preview version of Azure Stack, its private-cloud-that-behaves-just-like-Azure project.

Redmond's being cagey about the upgrade, saying only that if offers

  • Faster VM deployment times
  • Better performance in VM-related actions such as stop, start, delete
  • Incremental stability and reliability improvements to the portal experience
  • Updated extensions for Desired State Configuration and Docker (for purposes of Azure alignment)

If you want those new features, you'll need to re-install the whole thing rather than just doing an upgrade. If you're willing to endure that process, go get the trial code here and prepared to endure a 10GB download. ®
