The DataON TracSystem S2D family is built to optimize the full stack of Storage Spaces Direct, a feature in Windows Server 2016. It delivers industry-leading performance for the most affordable price, providing software-defined, shared-nothing storage.

Windows Server 2016 can be used for hyper-converged deployments, where compute and storage are both on the same cluster, simplifying configuration and reducing hardware costs.

Storage Spaces Direct can scale to up to 16 servers and over 400 drives, for up to 1 petabyte of storage per cluster. It also unlocks a new class of NVMe solid-state storage devices, for faster performance than SAS SSDs.
