Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)
Anarchy: Well, you’ll figure out who’s sitting on the couch, and who’s holding the camera 😊.
Today, we’re filming a tape with Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) running on top of the 8 NVMe datastore (2 Enterprise-grade NVMes per host). As usual, we’ll investigate how solution performs in the 4-node cluster. For test purpose, we’ll gradually increase the number of VMs running in the cluster till the overall performance stops growing. At the end, we’ll run the same tests on the single NVMe to get some reference values. Based on these reference values, we’ll judge on the overall S2D performance. How far they can jump.
