DataON K2N-47 (also known as Kepler-47) two-node hyper-converged appliances are designed for smaller deployments such as small-to-medium sized businesses, remote office/branch office and edge computing. These environments can present a challenge because of constrained budgets, space and power footprints, and IT resources.

  • Size and value-optimized solution in a mini-tower form factor that is 50% smaller than a standard 2U rack server
  • Built to optimize the full stack of Storage Spaces Direct, with Integrated compute, network and storage infrastructure
  • The affordable entry-level price point
  • The two nodes are directly connected to each other without an Ethernet fabric switch, via Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 cables
  • designed to be turnkey and easy to deploy, and can be up and running less than 15 minutes.
  • Certified Microsoft Windows Server Software-Defined (WSSD) premium hyper-converged solution, for the highest level of performance, manageability, and security offered, delivered as a fully-deployed experience.
  • Certified Intel Select Solution for Windows Server Software-Defined Storage for fast and easy deployments, and workload-optimized performance.
“Project Kepler-47 was a proof-of-concept that was born during our development of Storage Spaces Direct. We had a high-performing, resource-efficient and budget-friendly product in Storage Spaces Direct and we wanted to see if it was possible to create a low-cost appliance that could run Storage Spaces Direct to meet the needs of small and ROBO deployments.”

Managed by MUST


DataON solutions include our exclusive MUST (Management Utility Software Tool) visibility, monitoring, and management tool that provides SAN-like storage monitoring features for Windows Server environments.

Leveraging the Windows Health Service API, MUST can provide visibility at the system level as well as the storage cluster/volume/node levels. Its dashboard view gives you operational visibility of system analytics, infrastructure health, storage system metrics, and even logging insights.

With system alerts based on Windows Health Service faults and SAN-like call home services, MUST can notify system administrators of hardware failures, configuration issues, and resource saturation.

MUST can also be used with Window Admin Center, providing unique functionality such as historical data reporting, disk mapping, system alerts and SAN-like call home services.
