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.
