Deploying hyperconverged infrastructure has become the de-facto standard for organizations looking to modernize their aging infrastructure. Large storage deployments are increasingly being replaced by HCI-based solutions for most general-purpose workloads. HCI has proven to deliver better efficiency and price performance in the datacenter. Additionally, customers have been choosing a hybrid approach, migrating certain workloads to the cloud, while keeping other workloads on-premises.

Azure Stack HCI, a host operating system from Microsoft, is Microsoft’s HCI solution for customers who wish to run workloads on-premises and extend easily to Microsoft Azure for hybrid capabilities such as back-up, site recovery, storage, cloud-based monitoring and more. Microsoft requires that Azure Stack HCI needs to be updated at least once every six months to be in supported state. The recommendation is to install the quality and security updates once they are released, every month. Lenovo ThinkAgile MX Series Solutions are built using Lenovo’s popular servers and Microsoft Azure Stack HCI operating system software.

This white paper describes the new features in Azure Stack HCI version 22H2 which was released in October of 2022. The target audience is IT professionals, sales and account teams and end customers interested in a hybrid cloud solution in their data center. The audience is expected to be familiar with Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) technology in general and Lenovo ThinkAgile MX series offerings.
