The S2D Ready Nodes are PowerEdge R640 servers, which have been explicitly designed for dense scale-out architectures such as software-defined storage. R640 servers are dual-socket platforms that can be populated with Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) drives, solid-state drives (SSDs), and high-capacity traditional drives to support multitier software-defined storage architecture. You can customize the configuration of the R640 servers to match a wide range of computational and storage requirements.
Dell EMC Live Optics software provides an easy, nonintrusive way to collect, analyze, and report performance data from virtually every IT environment. With Live Optics software, you can generate reports showing:
When testing this solution, we used Live Optics software to collect and analyze performance statistics and to develop many of the graphs in this white paper.
