Going well beyond a feature walkthrough, this session delves into the nuances and complexities of the spaces-based SDS design. Starting with the hardware selection and continuing up the stack, this session empowers you to successfully design, deploy, and configure a storage solution based completely on Windows Server 2012 R2 and proven best practices. Examples galore!

      Joshua Adams or Jason Gerend, could you explain the hatred for SanDISK? I am putting together a purchase for myself with dataON & some sandisk optimus SSDs, but now am hesitant based on your comments in this video. Any way you can expand on what your personal experiences with them were?


      Thanks!

      @Christopher Vanderlinden: Sorry for the misunderstanding! We don't remember singling out SanDisk - we recommend working with your Storage Spaces solution vendor – in this case DataOn – for disks and firmware that they've tested and support.

      We have had some huge performance problems with SSD's based on SANDisk Firmware/components (some other vendors use the same with their own branding) and are thus avoiding them.

      Great session Jason and Joshua!  When will you publish the excel file?

      The Software-Defined Storage Design Calculator is now live, with updated guidance in the Software-Defined Storage Design Considerations Guide (link on the calculator page).

      We hope that you find them helpful!
