Axellio Announces FabricXpress Windows Server Software-Defined Solution
Today at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Axellio, a division of X-IO Technologies, announced its new FabricXpress Windows Server Software-Defined (FX-WSSD) solutions. The FabricXpress WSSD is an all-flash hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) appliance based on Microsoft Windows Server 2016 and 2019. According to Axellio, the FX-WSSD is designed to “scale in” with NVMe over PCIe that will enhance the virtual workload CPU performance improvements in Windows Server 2019.
According to the company, its HCI can do something that is less common, allow users to upgrade compute, storage, memory, and network bandwidth separately to enhance cost effectiveness while adding simplicity. Furthering that message is that the edge-computing appliance is built on HCI standards and tenant isolation services to simplify deployment, provisioning and security of on-premises multi-tenant clouds. The FX-WSSD was built around x86 industry standard hardware and is validated to Microsoft WSSD reference architecture to provide higher performance and capacity in a cost-effective manner.
Axellio will be showcasing its new HCI FX-WSSD at its booth (AIC137) at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Orlando, Florida.
The Axellio FabricXpress WSSD is available now starting in a 4U, 4 node footprint.
