A Cloud Pack package contains the fabric management artifacts required to deploy a workload such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft SQL Server, Windows Server, or Active Directory in a rapid, repeatable, data-driven manner. Data-driven deployments allow a common set of automation artifacts to deploy your unique customer/tenant/scenario environments simply by modifying the configuration data.
The potential benefits include:
- Driving consistency into your automation and deployment processes, raising the quality bar
- Enabling unattended installation and configuration of the service offering
- Reducing time-to-deploy and speeding time-to-market
- Focusing your resources on planning, designing, and implementing the value-added capabilities of each service offering
