DataON on Tuesday announced the Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliances (HCCA) that work with Microsoft Hyper-V and other Microsoft products. The S2D-3000 family consists of the S2D-3100 and DataON’s MUST (Management Utility Software Tools Visibility and Management Framework.

The S2D-3110 uses the DataON ClusterBlock Architecture, which provides infrastructure and management services for Hyper-V, Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica. Preconfigured as a minimum of 4-nodes in an HCCA Cluster, the S2D-3110 proves as mucy as 2.4 million IOPS and uses all-flash NVMe. Each HCCA can support as many as 40 virtual machines per node and also provides support for SMB 3.0 over RDMA.

The HCCA can be expanded in capacity via 12G SAS JBODS.

The new DataON S2D-3110 HCCA and MUST Management Visibility Framework is available now.

Why Should You Care: The hyper-converged infrastructure market is growing and DataOn has announced their new solution.  They call the solution ‘scale-out,’ but looking at the details, we also see it being called ‘clustered.’ There is a difference.  A clustered solution is general limited by the number of nodes it can manage and the communication is more tightly coupled, which can yield better performance.  Depending on what you need in the datacenter, be aware if you need a scale-out or a clustered solution and do not confuse the two.
