We are pleased to announce a new set of validated software-defined datacenter solutions are now available from our Windows Server partners, including DataON, Fujitsu, HPE, Lenovo, QCT, and Supermicro. These hyper-converged solutions make it faster and easier to deploy software-defined compute, storage, and networking in your datacenter. In addition to providing validated hardware solutions that meet the Microsoft reference architecture, these partners offer deployment services and one-stop technical support.
Partners offer three kinds of WSSD solutions:
- 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.
- Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Premium: Comprehensive “software-defined datacenter in a box” adds software-defined networking and security features to HCI Standard.
- Software-Defined Storage (SDS): Built on server-node clusters, this enterprise-grade, shared-storage solution replaces traditional external storage device at a much lower cost while support for all-flash NVMe drives delivers unrivaled performance.
