Benefits of Validated Node Solutions for Azure Stack HCI

Azure Stack HCI is Microsoft’s premier hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) cluster solution for running virtualized workloads in a hybrid environment that combines on-premises hardware with Azure cloud services. The latest Azure Stack HCI version 22H2 brings new security capabilities and numerous improvements, including Network ATC v2, storage replication compression, Hyper-V live migration, and more. Together with the next generation Supermicro hardware platforms, Azure Stack HCI takes the hybrid cloud operation to the next level.
