A few days ago a friend of mine asked me if i had any idea on how to get his SSD’s and HDD’s to be attached to the NVME cache devices. As he had added alot of disks over the last 7 months to his S2D cluster. And the normal behavior is that any new Disk will be auto bound to the Cache
A while ago i gave u the first look into Dataon Must, Dataon’s monitoring system that comes with their S2D servers.
Today i want to give you an insight into a new offering that is coming, Barton Glass. Barton Glass is built by Barton Systems member of the Cronos group and 2016 Microsoft Partner of the year in Belgium.
So i built a 2 node S2D cluster a while ago at home on some old HP G6 nodes i got cheap. But have decided to get rid of that and setup a new 3 node cluster with bit’s i can find on ebay. And reuse disks i have. This will be a multipart blog post as the parts are orderd and they come in. And during the build process. I will provide a step by step guide in building it, installing, configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting Storage Spaces Direct. Including switch config.
