Compatibility with Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct

Started by Andre

Is it possible to use the RAMDISK installed in all nodes of the cluster from Microsoft STORAGE SPACES DIRECT?
Of course with the persistent RAM disks with associated on-disk images and smart sync.

Unfortunately, virtual disk drives created by our product cannot be used in Microsoft Storage Spaces.

Microsoft requires the disks to have SAS, SATA, or iSCSI buses, while our RAM disk implements a generic bus that is incompatible with Storage Spaces. This limitation applies even with the use of persistent RAM disks with associated on-disk images and smart sync.
