Currently Microsoft requires Windows Datacenter edition licensing for a WSSD cluster. Its even advertised as an affordable solution under $10k for the hardware for branch offices. But its not economical when you need to add Windows Datacenter licensing (we only need to run 4 VMs with storage spaces direct) which adds another $25k NZD per year...!
Essentially including 2-3 node WSSD allowances in Windows Server Standard licensing will mean we don't need to look at alternatives such as VMware, or Starwind. Might as well just purchase a small SAN again?!4 votes
