When will Dynamic HDDs be supported with Optane Cache


I want to say that I am truly appreciative that Intel did decide to support secondary drives.

With that said, I do not understand why dynamic volumes are unsupported. This means that I have to take my 2 HDDs out of striping and use only one with my cache.

It should not matter where the application is ran from for the cache to recognize frequently used programs.

Is there considerations being made for Optane to cache dynamic drives?

This would be beneficial to Intel as it would drive Optane sales by allowing budget builders to stripe several HDDs and get large volume storage, for a decent price, with Almost SSD performance.

If this has not been considered, I would recommend an internal discussion concerning this.

Thank you.
