How WS16 & Intel Select Simplify WS Software-Defined & What’s New in WS16 v1709

In support of Microsoft Server software-defined storage, Intel has created Select Solutions. They are workload-optimized data center solutions that accelerate customer paths from product evaluation to installation. Intel selected DataON’s new Purley-based TracSystem HCI to be part of the first Intel Select Solution with Windows Server Software-Defined Storage.

In October, Microsoft released their semi-annual channel (SAC) update of Windows Server 2016, also known as build 1709. Included in the release are updates to the Server Core and Nano Server container images, introduction of a new Windows Server management tool known as “Project Honolulu”, and many compute, storage, networking and remote-desktop services updates.

Cherokee County School District (CCSD) is a public school system in the metro Atlanta, GA area. It consolidated their three-tiered SAN storage system into a consolidated Windows Server 2016 software-defined system that could support over 50,000 students and staff.

The webcast will explore the following topics:

•How Intel Select Solutions simplify and accelerate the process of selecting and deploying hardware and software needed for Window Server software-defined solutions.

•What’s new in Windows Server 2016 build 1709 and why the new features are important.

•Why Cherokee County School District chose a Windows Server 2016 solution to simplify their on-premise storage needs and provide enough VMs for their students and staff.

  • Best Practices for Windows Server 2016 HCI & How It’s Better with Veeam & HGST Recorded: Mar 21 2018 61 mins
    DataON, Veeam, HGST, and a Microsoft MVP
    Windows Server 2016 launched in late 2016, with new functionality such as Hyper-V, Storage Spaces Direct, Storage Replica and advanced Resilient File System (ReFS). As more and more enterprises are adopting and deploying Windows Server 2016 hyper-converged infrastructure, DataON and our partners would like to share our best practices and know-how so your HCI leverages all the key features and functionalities of a Microsoft software-defined data center (SDDC) with Storage Spaces Direct.

    Veeam Cloud Connect provides cloud-based disaster recovery and offsite backup. It allows businesses and organizations to have physical and virtual backups off-site and replicate VMs without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an offsite infrastructure. It’s also one of the few solutions that provides full, advanced support for Windows Server 2016.

    HGST (a division of Western Digital) provides high quality and high capacity SAS HDDs that are the core of DataON’s DNS family of JBODs. It lays down the foundation for a worry-free data center powered by Windows Server 2016.


    The webcast will explore the following topics:

    •What are the top deployment best practices you need to know about in Windows Server 2016

    •What is Veeam and how do they support Windows Server 2016

    •How does HGST technology support a Windows Server-based data center

  • Deploying Windows Server 2016 Hyper-Converged Cluster Platform with NVMe SSD Recorded: Nov 10 2016 58 mins
    Howard Lo; Claus Joergensen; David Risser; Vivek Sarath; Motti Beck; Mike Heumann
    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
