Simplify monitoring & management of Azure Stack HCI and Windows Server

DataON MUST™ (Management Utility Software Tool) provides a high level of infrastructure visibility, monitoring, and management for Azure Stack HCI and Windows Server environments. MUST simplifies data center management and helps enterprise customers transition from traditional SANs to Microsoft-based hyper-converged infrastructure.

MUST is a native extension for Microsoft Windows Admin Center, so you can use both Windows Admin Center and MUST in a single pane of glass. Windows Admin Center is the modernized and simplified tool set for managing Azure Stack HCI and Windows Server environments. Evolving from familiar tools like Server Manager and MMC, Windows Admin Center is a lightweight, browser-based, customer-deployed solution with no agent installation required on target servers. It comes at no extra cost beyond the Azure Stack HCI or Windows Server license.

DataON MUST Features

Historic data reporting

 Provides real-time and monthly dashboards of your system performance data including IOPS, latency, throughput on your cluster, storage pool, volume, and nodes.

Alert services

 Provides real-time e-mail alerts to system administrators based on Microsoft Health Service faults. E-mail alerts can be setup based on multiple levels, such as critical, warning, and information.
