I’ve recently watched several UTUBE videos for Storage Spaces Direct. The videos show stuff related performance, configuration and mgmt. In some of the videos the performance is HIGH, some where in the region of 1,000,000 I/O per second and data transfers of hundreds of GB per second. Storage Spaces Direct is demoed in some of these videos showing the use of JBOD SSD, NVME and HDD, no high end SAN solution from market leaders required. I’m a little sceptical at the results and claims from this feature. Has anyone implemented or plan to implement Storage Spaces Direct 2016 ? Are any of you testing Storage Spaces Direct 2016, maybe Scale out File server or Hyper Converged solution, what are you findings. I’m keen to hear other IT pros views on this feature.
If you want a link to the stuff I’ve watched let me know.
