The Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub is a fully engineered hybrid-cloud platform that is built on a Microsoft hybrid-cloud-integrated architecture. This architecture consists of common modular building blocks that scale linearly from 4 to 16 nodes in a scale unit (SU). Dell EMC Integrated System provides a simple, cost-effective solution that delivers multiple performance and capacity options to match any use case. The solution supports a wide variety of cloud-native applications and workloads.
Dell EMC Integrated System is based on Microsoft Azure Stack Hub software and built with Intel Xeon Gold and Platinum processors. Dell EMC Integrated System enables customers to start small and grow, scaling capacity and performance with minimal disruption. Scaling in predictable units ensures a “pay-as-you-grow” approach for future growth.
The following figure shows the solution architecture.

Dell EMC Integrated System is built around a scale unit (SU), which is comprised of 4, 8, 12, or 16 identical nodes. As a hyperconverged platform, each node includes both compute and storage resources. Within the SU, the solution provides flexibility at a component level to optimize processor, memory, storage capacity, and caching ratios.
