Storage Review recently reviewed a DataON solution for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory. It was their first experience with an Azure Stack HCI solution, and they gave its Editor’s Choice award, calling it “the fastest mid-market 4-node cluster we’ve seen.”
Microsoft Azure Stack HCI consolidates software-defined compute, storage, and networking into one cluster to provide high-performance, cost-effective, and easily scalable virtualization that can run on industry-standard hardware. It can be used for edge, ROBO, data center, hybrid and cloud deployments.
And if you’re already a Windows Server 2016/2019 Datacenter edition customer then you already have the capability to run Azure Stack HCI.
Azure Stack HCI is designed to take advantage of the latest technologies, including Intel® Optane™ technology. A system with Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory can produce 76% more IOPS performance over a system without Intel® Optane™ persistent memory.
In this webinar, Storage Reviews’ Brian Beeler shares his results from testing an Azure Stack HCI solution and Intel’s Alessandro Goncalves will explain how Intel® technology helps Azure Stack HCI achieve incredible performance numbers.
