Windows Server Software-Defined

Get up and running quickly with a validated Windows Server 2016 solution
Hyper-Converged Infrastructure from Windows Server

The goal of Microsoft’s Windows Server Software-Defined (WSSD) program is to ensure that customers have a seamless deployment and steady-state operational experience on validated hardware. WSSD solutions use Microsoft-validated designs and follow engineering best practices to get you up and running without lengthy design and build times.

DataON offers an array of WSSD solutions that work with Window Server to deliver high-performance storage or hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Hyper-converged solutions bring together compute, storage, and networking on industry-standard servers and components for improved data center intelligence and control while avoiding the costs of specialized high-end hardware.

DataON hyper-converged solutions have earned the highest certification. WSSD HCI premium solutions provide a comprehensive software-defined “data center in a box” for the highest level of performance, manageability, and security offered, delivered as a fully-deployed experience.

DataON HCI solutions are WSSD HCI premium certified

Microsoft has three levels of WSSD certifications. As a WSSD HCI premium certified provider,  DataON offers its customers a complete turnkey “software-defined data-center-in-a-box” with the highest HCI certifications from Microsoft.

Software-Defined Storage (SDS) – Enterprise-grade shared-nothing storage solution built on server node clusters replaces traditional SAN/NAS at a much lower cost. Organizations can quickly add storage capacity as needs grow over time. Support for all-flash NVMe drives delivers unrivaled performance.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Standard – Highly virtualized compute and storage are combined in the same server node cluster, making them easier to deploy, manage, and scale. By eliminating traditional IT compute, storage, and networking silos, you can simplify your infrastructure.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Premium – Comprehensive “software-defined data-center-in-a-box” adds Software-Defined Networking and Security Assurance features to HCI Standard. This makes it easy to scale compute, storage, and networking up and down to meet demand just like public cloud services.
