Microsoft Azure Stack HCI

All-In-One Servers for Virtualized Computing, Networking, and Storage

Deploy, Manage, and Scale with Ease

A GIGABYTE server with a validated Microsoft Azure Stack HCI solution allows enterprises to add a consolidated all-in-one solution with simplicity and flexibility. Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is an architecture that joins networking, storage, computing, virtualization, and back up into a centralized management solution. Virtual machines (VMs) can be used for edge workloads in branch offices or retail. At the same time, virtualization-based security protect sensitive workloads. In addition, through centralized management it is easy to scale up or down a hyper-converged data center. In GIGABYTE’s H262-Z61 server, Microsoft's Azure HCI solution has been integrated.

Why Microsoft Azure Stack HCI

  • maintenance
    Hybrid Usage

    Able to run a virtual machine on premises then connect to cloud for recovery or management.

  • save_money
    Affordability

    Small footprint server starting at 2 nodes, and a system costing less than $10k/node.

  • administrator
    Ease of Management

    Windows Admin Center can manage the hybrid nature, while handling normal daily operations and issues.

  • expansion
    Support for the Best

    Support the latest NVMe drives, persistent memory, and remote-direct memory access (RDMA) networking.

  • performance
    Solid Performing Hardware

    Azure HCI is a cluster that runs on validated hardware for performance and resiliency.

  • resiliency
    Resiliency

    Allow users, apps, and VMs in a two-node HCI cluster to run through hardware failures without disruption, and without the added expense of a hardware RAID.
