K2N-7216G and K3N-7216G Switchless Integrated System for Azure Stack HCI

DataON K2N/K3N-7216G Switchless Integrated Systems for Azure Stack HCI combine Intel® technology with Azure Arc-enabled Azure Stack HCI.
Optimized for workloads in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), the K2N/K3N-7216G features all-NVMe flash storage and are powered by 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. They are designed for smaller, remote deployments such as small-to-medium sized businesses, remote office/branch offices and edge computing.
The AZS-7216G also features NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) for the best experience with graphics-rich virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and artificial intelligence and machines learning (AI & ML) applications.
Integrated Systems provide an “appliance-like” experience, delivering the fastest time-to-value through the convenience of pre-installed software, integrated drivers, and firmware updates. Simple to procure and deploy, they’re turnkey solutions that require little deployment effort from IT staff.
Available in 2- and 3-node versions, DataON Kepler Integrated Systems feature switchless back-to-back networking for peak simplicity and affordability, plus innovative technologies that set Azure Stack HCI apart at the small scale. Nested resiliency protects you from multiple concurrent failures. Cloud quorum technologies can leverage Azure instead of an appliance virtual machine for a quorum. Kepler 3-node (K3N) solutions provide an additional layer of resiliency over Kepler 2-node (K2N) solutions, essential in environments or multiple ROBO and edge deployments that require 3-way mirror fault tolerance.
