Windows Server 2016 S2D takes internal storage in servers across a cluster and pools it together for fault tolerance and high-performance. The storage can take the form of ordinary SAS/SATA HDDs or SSDs. One of the major benefits of S2D is the simpler and higher-performance networking, with RDMA-based networking being the performance option.
Chelsio, in close collaboration with Microsoft, has optimized S2D for peak performance and ease-of-deployment with Chelsio’s iWARP (RDMA/TCP) networking solution so that any organization will be able to deploy S2D storage rapidly and cost-effectively. Chelsio iWARP also enables streamlined and simplified configuration of RDMA high-performance networking for S2D.
The first part of the webinar provides an overview of iWARP networking for Windows Server 2016 S2D. The second part consists of an end-user perspective of deploying iWARP for S2D, while the final session provides a summary of recent S2D/iWARP IOPS and Throughput performance tests conducted by Microsoft.
Please join Tom Reu, Consulting Application Engineer, Chelsio Communications, and his guests, Paul Schnackenburg, an MCSE, MCT, MCTS and MCITP certified IT Consultant and Blogger, and Dan Lovinger, Principal Architect, Microsoft, for a live webinar at 3 p.m. PT on April 26th, as they discuss the demanding networking requirements for S2D to ensure optimal application performance and availability. Learn what your organization can do with S2D solutions for software-defined storage (SDS) optimized with Chelsio Communications networking.
