SUPERMICRO 2U 2028TP-S2D REFERENCE ARCHITECTURE FOR MICROSOFT STORAGE SPACES DIRECT (S2D) HYPER-CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE (HCI)

Microsoft has revamped its Windows Server-based software-defined storage (SDS) offerings to address the need of lower-cost, cloud-scale software-defined data center scenarios. Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), a new feature in Windows Server 2016, allows rapid provision of highly available and scalable SDS deployments with industry-standard servers using direct attached storage. S2D offers two deployment scenarios, namely hyper-converged and converged. Both aim to dramatically simplify IT infrastructure deployment and lower acquisition costs, while providing high scalability and flexibility, and uncompromised performance and efficiency.
