The Lightning series is the first Microsoft WSSD-certified and Intel Select Solution with Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct. It leverages the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors Family, Intel® Optane™ Technology and NVM Express (NVMe™) to deliver breakthrough performance and incredible responsiveness, with greater VM density.

  • Breakthrough performance with 30% greater IOPS performance (over the previous generation) for write-intensive workloads by leveraging Intel® Optane™ SSDs that are NVMe-based for the fast cache tier for Window Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct.
  • Increased responsiveness with dramatically reduced disk latency with Intel® Optane™ Technology that delivers one thousandth the latency of NAND flash memory with ten times the density of DRAM memory.
  • Greater VM density per cluster with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors Family, delivering up to 28 cores per processor, 18 DIMMS per CPU memory density and 224 physical cores for a 4-node Storage Space HCI deployment.
  • Highest network efficiency and throughput with SMB3 RDMA fabric delivering 2x throughput compared to TCP/IP, less than 1 µsec latency from VM-to-VM communication, and fewer CPU cycles per I/O with better core utilization.

Every TracSystem HCI is pre-configured with DataON MUST (Management Utility Software Tool) infrastructure visibility, monitoring and management software, which provides SAN-like storage monitoring features and system alerts based on Windows Health Service faults. The inclusion of MUST is what completes a Windows Server 2016 solution as a viable SAN replacement.

All Flash Series

The All Flash series features high-endurance NVMe SSDs for write caching tier. Write cache maximizes write performance and reduce the wear on the capacity SSDs. The write cache coalesces writes and only de-stages written data to the capacity tier when needed, reducing the wear on the capacity SSDs. Data is read directly from the capacity tier without being cached in the caching SSDs, since capacity SSDs generally have good read performance, there are typically more of them and read I/O isn’t a significant factor in the lifespan of SSDs. Since the caching SSDs are used only for a write cache, the entire capacity can be used as a write cache, further reducing the wear of the devices of capacity tier. An All-NVMe or NVMe + SATA SSD configuration provides highly predictable and uniform performance regardless of the workload.

Hybrid Series

The Hybrid series features high-endurance NVMe SSDs for write caching for capacity SSD devices and as read and write cache for the HDD devices. The write cache coalesces writes and de-stages written data to SSD tier when needed to reduce wear and de-stages written data to HDD tier sequentially if possible to increase the write performance of the slower HDDs. The read cache stores frequently read data from the HDD tier minimizing I/O to the slower HDDs. An NVMe + SATA SSD + HDD configuration provides highly predictable and uniform performance for workloads configured to use the SSD tier and at the same time provide cost effective storage capacity for workloads configured to also use the HDD tier.
