Many educational institutions are turning to Microsoft hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) as a foundation for their data centers. With HCI, IT administrators are able to use industry-standard servers with local-attached drives to create highly available, highly scalable software-defined storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN or NAS arrays.
With a DataON solution for Azure Stack HCI, IT administrators are able to:
- Meet tight budgets with deep discounts on Microsoft Windows Server Datacenter edition licenses and eliminating expensive VMware monthly fees
- Easily scale up by adding additional server nodes as storage needs increase
- Get better resiliency and performance at nearly half the cost of a SAN
- Get up and running quickly and reliably with a Microsoft-validated on-premises solution, making it easy to start using Azure monitoring, backup and site recovery, and a cloud witness
