DataON Kepler-47 Provides Low Cost 2-Node HCI for Storage Spaces Direct and Hyper-V

Hundreds of people came by the DataON and Microsoft booths to see the DataON Kepler-47. It’s a low-cost 2-node appliance for Storage Spaces Direct and Hyper-V. It features a small form factor (both nodes can fit into your carry-on luggage) which is perfect for remote office/branch office (ROBO) environments where space for servers can be hard to come by. It also has a budget-friendly price (under $10k), helping to reduce costs when you need to support multiple remote sites. Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology connects the two nodes, eliminating the need for a networking switch.

The DataON Kepler-47 comes in all-flash and hybrid storage versions.

Microsoft Project Honolulu

Microsoft’s big story at Microsoft Ignite 2017 was the announcement of Project Honolulu for Windows Server 2016. It’s a locally deployed, browser-based management tool that enables on-premises administration of Windows Server with no Azure or cloud dependency. It gives IT admins full control over all aspects of their Server infrastructure and it particularly useful for management on private networks that are not connected to the Internet. It is complementary to System Center and Operations Management Suite, and it not intended to replace these products and services.

DataON’s exclusive MUST visibility, management, and monitoring tool for Windows Server environments will have complete integration with Project Honolulu, providing DataON customers the most a premium visibility, management and monitoring experience for Windows Server 2016 SDDC environments.
