Notes from the field: Implementing Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) 2019 + Lenovo + WSLab: 1.Hardware consideration

Hardware consideration:

I am deploying a disaggregated S2D scenario, consisting of 3x clusters each with 3 nodes.
  • 2x Compute Clusters (one with a lot of CPU cores the other with high-frequency CPU), each node:
    • ThinkSystem SR630 2.5" Chassis with 8 Bays
    • 2x Intel Xeon Gold 6244 8C 150W 3.6GHz Processor/
    • 24x ThinkSystem 64GB TruDDR4 2933MHz (2Rx4 1.2V) RDIMM
    • 1x ThinkSystem M.2 with Mirroring Enablement Kit
    • 2x ThinkSystem M.2 5100 240GB SATA 6Gbps Non-Hot Swap SSD
