S2D Family: Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliances


The DataON TracSystem S2D family is built to optimize the full stack of Storage Spaces Direct which is a new feature in Windows Server 2016. It delivers the highest performance for the most affordable price, providing software-defined, shared-nothing storage.

Windows Server 2016 can be used for hyper-converged deployments, where storage and compute are both on the same cluster, simplifying the configuration and lowering hardware costs significantly.

Storage Spaces Direct can scale to up to 16 servers and over 400 drives. Using the latest class of NVME SSD’s, making it out perform SAS SSD’s.

High performance

Takes advantage of all-flash NVMe SSDs to achieve over 3.2M IOPS in a 4-node cluster.

Supports more VM’s

Supports more than 40 VMs per nodes and up to 16 nodes per cluster

Highly Scalable

Delivers storage, networking and compute with near-linear scalability.

Easy to Deploy

Can be deployed easily out-of-the-box with simple installation.

Easy to Manage

Comes with DataOn MUST™ software pre-installed for management and infrastructure visibility.
