  • DataON Integrated Solution for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) hybrid – AKS hybrid is an on-premises implementation of the popular Azure Kubernetes Service orchestrator, which automates running containerized applications at scale while allowing users to operate consistent cloud native applications anywhere, making it quicker to get started hosting Linux and Windows containers in your data center.
  • DataON Integrated Solution for Azure Arc-Managed SQL – Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instance is an Azure SQL data service that can be created on the infrastructure of your choice. It enables existing SQL Server customers to lift and shift their applications to Azure Arc data services with minimal application and database changes while maintaining data sovereignty. At the same time, SQL Managed Instance includes built-in management capabilities that drastically reduce management overhead.
  • DataON Integrated Solution for Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Edge – DataON is partnering with Strategic Online Systems, Inc. (SOS) for enterprise-grade AI at the Edge. Its StrategicVision solutions are deployed privately on-premises and can utilize existing security assets. By being on-premises, all your data stays with you, response time is fast, and your local servers are secure by design. SOS is a risk mitigation company, functioning as a level two managed service provider (MSP). SOS partners with Microsoft, NVIDIA and DataON to provide hybrid cloud and AI at the Edge solutions that help customers solve real-world challenges. Microsoft and NVIDIA have collaborated to transform AI & ML, leveraging the power of NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate edge AI with Azure Stack HCI. Together, NVIDIA GPUs and Azure Stack HCI make an accelerated platform that can process data from sensors and drive decisions in real time.

DATAON INTEGRATED SYSTEMS FOR MICROSOFT AZURE STACK HCI are designed to increase an organization’s control of and visibility into key resource management, provisioning, policy enforcement, app deployment, and security challenges. They combine Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, Azure Arc, and DataON servers built by Intel.

  • Azure Stack HCI is a hybrid cloud solution that merges the power of the Azure control plane with hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and enables organizations to advance digital modernization goals with cost-effective technology. HCI infrastructure provides benefits over traditional infrastructure deployments, including robust scalability, reliability, improved performance, simplified deployments and management, and software-defined infrastructure and reduced infrastructure costs.
  • Azure Arc-enabled infrastructure is a cloud infrastructure that is managed and monitored from Azure and includes features such as Azure Resource Manager, Azure Monitor, and Azure Security Center. The tight integration of Azure Arc and Azure Stack HCI simplifies management and operation of complex and distributed environments on-premises, at the edge, and in multi-cloud environments.
  • DataON servers are powered by new 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and are designed to provide the best customer experience with Azure Stack HCI and include software, hardware, monitoring & management, cluster aware updating, and Azure services. Components are continually tested by Microsoft and DataON for the highest reliability and include world-class 24×7 joint support from DataON and Microsoft. Select models include NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) for the best experience with graphic-rich virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), artificial intelligence, and machine learning (AI & ML) applications.
