The DataON S2D-3224i is built to optimize the full stack of Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct in a hyper-converged platform.

Optimized for performance, density, and capacity, this all-flash Intel NVMe solution can achieve over 2.4M IOPS in a 4-node cluster. It combines high-performance NVMe SSDs with SMB 3.0 networking to maximize performance and capacity. This appliance also runs on the Cluster Shared Volumes Resilient File System (ReFS) to maximize data availability, deliver high resiliency, and improve data integrity across scale-out file servers (SoFS) and software storage bus to storage and networking hardware.

  • Preconfigured 4-node HCCA Clusters – Provides expanded capacity with scalable and operational flexibility.
  • Industry-Leading Application Performance – Provides over 2.4M IOPS (running VM Fleet) using the latest all-flash Intel NVMe SSD technology to scale IOPS intensive workloads.
  • Hyper-V virtualization hosting – Each HCCA can support more than 40 Hyper-V virtual machines per node, with up to 16 nodes per cluster.
  • Storage and networking with SMB 3.0 over RDMA – Increases CPU efficiency while delivering the highest throughput and lowest latency.
  • Hyper-converged scalability – Delivers incremental compute, networking, and storage resources while providing near-linear scalability. HCCA storage can also be expanded via 12GB/s SAS JBODs.
  • Automated out-of-the-box deployment – Accelerates time to deployment for Windows Server 2016, Storage Spaces Direct, and Storage Replica environments.
  • Integrated data protection and guarded fabric – Supports Windows Server 2016 with Shielded VM and TPM 2.0 trusted attestation for security and business continuity.
  • Built for Microsoft services and I/O intensive applications – Ideal for VDI, SQL Server, Dynamics ERP, and business intelligence deployments.

Infrastructure Visibility and Management Tool

DataON S2D-3000 solutions are integrated with DataON MUST, providing SAN-like storage monitoring features for customers deploying Windows Server 216 Software-Defined Solutions.

MUST Datasheet
Dashboard Level Metrics
MUST delivers SAN-like storage monitoring features through a single pane of glass, providing real-time dashboard level metrics for IOPS, latency, throughput on cluster nodes and volumes.
System Alerts
With system alerts based on Windows Health Service faults and SAN-like call home services, systems administrators will be automatically notified of hardware failures, configuration issues and resource saturation.
Fully Integrated with SM-API
MUST utilizes the Windows Storage Health Service API built into Windows Server 2016 to monitor Storage Spaces Direct.
Single Pane of Glass
MUST provides advanced cluster monitoring, performance metrics, system health statistics, and automated system alerts.
All DataON WSSD solutions are pre-configured with MUST at no extra charge.

  • SDDC & Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Tier
    Services subtitle
    With the initial focus on storage monitoring and visibility, MUST provides system level information for performance, capacity, hardware inventory and faults/alerts. MUST gives you a dashboard level view of your operational visibility, analytics, infrastructure health management, storage systems metrics and event logging insights.
  • Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliance/Node Tier
    At the hyper-converged cluster appliance (HCCA) node level, MUST provides pool, volume and device level performance, health and operational analytics for HCCA clusters. This enables you to provide proactive systems maintenance and understand requirements for workload migrations.
  • Systems and Storage Services Audit Log Tier
    At the systems and storage services audit level, we provide the detailed logging level visibility for events to perform root cause analysis and export analytics source data.
  • SAN-like Call Home Service Support
    Windows administrators can now have automated email alerts sent to key contacts based on the Health Service faults in Windows Server 2016. You can also leverage SNMP traps for 3rd party monitoring including disk and hardware replacement.
