Windows Server Software Defined (WSSD) Program is an invitation-only program by Microsoft in which solution providers design hyperconverged appliances that integrate Windows Server 2016 Software-Defined infrastructures. After going through Microsoft’s validation and requirements, one’s solution can be endorsed by Microsoft as the quickest, low risk, cost-effective way to consume Windows Server 2016 Software-Defined Data Center.
The WSSD program requires solution providers to meet four phases—design, validation, deployment and operations. Designed configurations must be reviewed and validated by Microsoft, following Software-Defined Datacenter Additional Qualifications (SDDC AQ). Afterwards, one must firmly follow Microsoft’s deployment and operation policies to be considered part of the WSSD program.
QCT and QxStack Windows Server 2016 Cloud-Ready Solution
QCT has long been partnering with Microsoft in delivering enterprise solutions that best fit their clients’ needs. WSSD validation demonstrates our values in performance optimization and economic price per performance. In order for QCT to pass validation, QCT-designed appliances must undergo their Private Cloud Simulator (PCS) within SDDC AQ. PCS measured QCT solution’s ability to withstand all potential scenarios associated with storage clusters and VMs a datacenter could encounter over the course of a year. High level stress tests could run 1000 times at most on our appliances under these conditions. QCT’s QxStack WS2016 MSW2000 and MSW6000 hyperconverged appliance are now validated by the SDDC AQ qualification, with MSW8000 currently under review. As QCT continues to strictly enforce Microsoft’s policies, QCT’s will always provide the best in class Windows Server 2016 to its customers.
