A self service portal enables end-users to access a portal where they can provision and manage VMs from templates, eliminating administrator requests or activity.

Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) does not provide any end-user self service capabilities of its own.

Self-Service functionality however can be enabled by leveraging Windows Azure Pack (WAP) and Microsoft Azure Stack. These solutions require separate licenses.

If you are using Windows Azure Pack (WAP) and SCVMM, you can deploy the solution on top of an S2D cluster. WAP and SCVMM are based on storage classification that can be defined from SCVMM.
