Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is one of the hottest topics in data center architecture today. In the simplest terms, HCI combines computing, storage, and networking components into a single physical instance. These devices, or HCI appliances, are significantly simpler and cheaper to deploy and make scaling of applications easier. This enables IT managers to maximize their data centers efficiency and meet the networking and storage demands of Microsoft’s Software-defined Data Center (SDDC). The greatest challenge with HCI for medium-sized enterprises, however, has often been finding a solution that is not too large (and expensive) for their needs.
Join speakers from DataON, Microsoft, Intel, Mellanox and EVGA to learn how to meet this challenge head-on by rapidly and cost-effectively deploying a Windows Server 2016 hyper-converged cluster platform with Non-Volatile Memory Express® (NVMe™) SSDs.
The webcast will explore the following topics:
• Basic concepts of HCI, including challenges in deploying HCI solutions
• How to choose the right partners to architect and deploy a hyper-converged cluster platform
• Technologies that form the nucleus of DataON’s Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliance (HCCA), including Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Intel E5 CPUs and NVMe 3D NAND SSDs, and Mellanox end-to-end RDMA-capable networking solutions.
• The benefits that EVGA (a leading hardware provider of high-end hardware components for PC gaming and video) realized by deploying the DataON-Intel-Microsoft hyper-converged cluster solution
