DataON K2N-224 for Azure Stack HCI selected a finalist in SeachStorage’s 2020 Enterprise Data Storage Products of the Year

Storage magazine & SearchStorage has named the DataON K2N-224 switchless solution for Azure Stack HCI a finalist for its 2020 Products of the Year awards!

“Microsoft has a compelling offering with its Azure Stack HCI. DataON builds on Azure Stack HCI to deliver comprehensive offerings that span from the edge to the data center to the cloud. The DataON K2N-224 combines speed, capacity and density (two 2U nodes, 192TB per node) with a fully integrated Azure Stack HCI experience.”

This is our second award in as many years for our solutions for Azure Stack HCI. In 2019, Storage Review gave an Editor’s Choice award to our DataON HCI-224 solution for Azure Stack HCI. These awards validate our belief that DataON and Microsoft deliver the best-in-breed, software-defined, hybrid cloud solutions on the market.

The K2N-224 is a DataON Kepler 2-node switchless solution designed for branch office, retail, and edge environments. It features two nodes that are directly connected, eliminating the need for a networking switch and adapters to connect the nodes.

It’s powered by Azure Stack HCI, which features a world-class hyper-converged infrastructure stack with the latest Azure hypervisor with built-in software-defined storage and networking. It provides industry-best storage performance, built-in resiliency, and superior hybrid cloud integration for Azure customers. It uses the same technology that Microsoft uses to run its own data centers. It’s also powered by Intel technologies, such as Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ SSDs and persistent memory.

This is the 19th annual Storage magazine and SearchStorage Products of the Year awards. The K2N-224 is one of 47 finalists from nearly 100 entries.

The announcement of winners will appear in the February issue of Storage magazine and online at
