The platform also fully supports Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI in addition to native Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Intune and Windows 365 Cloud PCs.
- Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) Hybrid
Many data centers are embracing containerized applications for improved resource efficiency, security, scalability, and rapid deployment. DataON Integrated Solutions for Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) hybrid offer an on-premises implementation of the popular Azure Kubernetes Service orchestrator. It automates running containerized applications at scale, while enabling users to operate consistent cloud-native applications anywhere. This solution makes it quicker to get started hosting Linux and Windows containers in your data center.
- Azure Arc-enabled Data Services (SQL Managed Instance and PostgreSQL)
DataON Integrated Solutions for Arc-Managed SQL feature Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instance, an Azure SQL data service that can be created on the infrastructure of your choice. It enables existing SQL Server customers to lift and shift their applications to Azure Arc data services with minimal application and database changes while maintaining data sovereignty. At the same time, SQL Managed Instance includes built-in management capabilities that drastically reduce management overhead.
- AI at the Edge
DataON is partnering with Strategic Online Systems, Inc. (SOS), a risk mitigation company, and managed service provider, to deliver DataON Integrated Solutions for Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Edge. Utilizing the SOS StrategicVision Solution software suite, DataON Integrated Solutions for AI at the Edge are deployed privately on-premises and can utilize existing assets like video feeds, badge scanners, environmental sensors, proximity sensors, operator input, and disparate systems to better security, provide real-time tracking, detect anomalies, monitor performance, improve operations efficiency, and more. By being on-premises, all your data stays with you, response time is fast, and your local servers are secure by design.

If you’re not already familiar with Azure Stack HCI, in concise terms, it’s a hybrid cloud solution that combines the power of the Azure control plane with hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), enabling organizations to advance their digital modernization goals with cost-effective technology. HCI infrastructure offers various benefits over traditional deployments, including robust scalability, reliability, improved performance, simplified deployment and management, software-defined infrastructure, and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
Why Azure Arc-enabled?
Azure Arc is a set of technologies that help customers manage and govern increasingly complex environments that span across public & private clouds. Azure Arc brings consistent experience of using Azure services across the cloud of your choice.
It also streamlines and enhances various aspects of IT infrastructure management. It simplifies tasks like provisioning, policy enforcement, and app deployment, including SQL server instances and Kubernetes, across distributed environments on-premises, at the edge, or in multi-cloud setups.
Arc also extends Azure and Azure Stack HCI-based security to hybrid and multi-cloud environments and integrates 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor built-in security and extensions and Microsoft Secured Core, providing complete protection from silicon to cloud.
