Yesterday I kicked off with Hyper-V, and in today’s post I'll focus in on Storage Spaces Direct.
Learn how all-flash Storage Spaces Direct will revolutionize your application performance with Windows Server 2016 or Microsoft Azure Stack. You’ll learn how local flash and S2D increase application performance and reduces your software licensing cost, to comply with application SLAs and reduced IT budgets. We’ll back this up with hard data from extensive testing by SanDisk’s Data Propulsion Lab. Come learn from the storage experts at SanDisk, and see how the combined products of SanDisk, Lenovo, Microsoft, Broadcom, and Mellanox deliver the storage solutions you need to meet your business challenges.
Use industry-standard, cloud-inspired hardware to build highly performant, capacity efficient, and fault tolerant software-defined storage for Hyper-V and private clouds. Storage Spaces Direct enables scale-out Hyper-Converged or disaggregated Scale-Out File Server (SoFS) deployments. It’s a key building block of the Microsoft Azure Stack architecture, and here’s the best part – it’s included at zero additional cost in Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Datacenter.
Storage Spaces Direct is a new option in Windows Server 2016 allowing you to build software-defined storage arrays in scale-out file server. In this session, we explain Storage Spaces Direct and how to build it out, how file operations work across caching and capacity tiers and explain new options for site repilcation with Storage Replica.
