Whether your organization is running a production line complete with assembly robotic automation or simply managing sales, engineering CAD data, logistics and inventory, it’s important that your IT infrastructure have the resiliency, storage capacity and performance to maximize employee efficiency, avoid costly downtimes and ensure data integrity. Microsoft Azure Stack HCI hybrid cloud solutions deliver highly available, highly scalable, high performance, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) at nearly half the price of a SAN. Even better, a validated Azure Stack HCI solution enables seamless integration with Azure services such as backup and site recovery and monitoring for extra resiliency.
Microsoft Azure Stack HCI and DataON Kepler 2-node (K2N) solutions for manufacturing and construction
In many instances, there are logistical IT challenges with remote factories, processing plants, offshore platforms or large offsite construction projects. DataON Kepler 2-node (K2N) solutions for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI are designed for these remote office/branch office (ROBO) deployments, making it simpler for IT administrators to manage offsite locations. In the case of a connectivity outage, Microsoft’s familiar operating system makes it easy for an IT department to remotely help a non-technical employee troubleshoot or manage a remote infrastructure.
