Hey Storage Spaces Direct Fans,

Recently I had the privilege of speaking at the TechMentor Event in Redmond, WA. During my session there one of the other speakers Bruce Mackenzie-Low who works for HPE shared the link to the HPE’s Storage Spaces Direct Build Guide. I had been hunting all over the internet and HPE’s site for months trying to find something like this. This is the first real guide for HPE hardware that I have found and I hope more are coming.

This guide is really important if you are going to be building on HPE Hardware. It has all of the certified Bill of Materials (BOM) components required for you to order your gear. It also lists the tested Firmware Versions of Mellanox CX3-Pro adapters they have used.

You can grab the document yourselves here:


Thanks, and Happy Learning,
