Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces (DSMS) - Validated, Flexible, Simple and Solution Supported.
Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces (DSMS) has been extended from its original SOFS (Scale-Out File Server) offering The DSMS solution requires unique solution SKUs called solution IDs. These DSMS solution IDs are required when ordering a DSMS configuration, which is the only way to get access to the benefits such as performance and sizing, optimized server and storage components, single-payload updates, and solution-level technical support. If you are in a geographical area outside of the US, the solution IDs are not available at this time; however, you may reference the configuration name instead. For more information, see Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces Configurations and Solution IDs.
