We used one XtremIO X2 storage array as FC SAN storage to test SQL Server 2019 on Kubernetes using the CSI plug-in.
The storage layer consists of the following components:
- An XtremIO X2 cluster with two X-Brick modules, with 72 x 2 TB flash-based SAS SSDs
- Two controllers and one disk array enclosure (DAE) on each X-Brick module
- Four 16 Gb/s front-end FC ports
- Two InfiniBand switches for two X-Brick connections
