Discover Azure Stack HCI
Azure Stack HCI is a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) cluster solution that hosts virtualized Windows and Linux workloads and their storage in a hybrid on-premises environment. Azure hybrid services increase cluster capabilities such as cloud-based monitoring, site recovery, VM backups, as well as a centralized view of all Azure Stack HCI deployments in the Azure portal. Admins can manage the cluster with existing tools including Windows Admin Center, System Center, and PowerShell.
Why the Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Solution?
A few notable use cases
There are numerous use cases for Azure Stack HCI, nonetheless, it isn’t intended for non-virtualized workloads. Most organizations often choose Azure Stack HCI in the following scenarios:
Why adopt an HCI solution over a traditional one?
Increased IT coherence
Get rid of manual operations and the need for isolated operational expertise. Today, a single converged IT team can effectively monitor and manage resources and improve storage capabilities. In additional, with HCI, IT resources are presented storage pools that can be dynamically allocated to deliver the right amount of capacity, performance and security.
Save costs with better storage
Save remarkable costs by using a scale-up/scale-out architecture that requires only industry-standard x86 servers, not expensive, purpose-built networking. After that, simply add capacity as needed with no interruptions. This solution helps organizations avoid vendor lock-in and eliminate overprovisioning, meaning lesser infrastructure spending across your organization's data center.
Greater ability to scale seamlessly
One has to responsive to fast changing business needs. Set up hardware in a couple of hours in order to get workloads running in a matter of minutes. This in turn will accelerate the performance of business-critical applications like relational databases. It is no doubt that HCI scales better than traditional infrastructure mainly because it enables a future-proof IT environment that allows you to scale up and scale out to effortlessly meet specific application needs.
