Follow me and learn Windows Server 2012 – Scale-Out File Servers

Night 22, I am going strong and still studying.  Bruce here!  Tonight I am looking at Scale-Out File Servers.  Sometimes known as Active-Active.  Scale-Out File Servers is a great choice when your applications keeps files open for a long amount of time, like Hyper-V virtual hard disk or SQL Server database files.  It is going to be a bad choice for scenario like information workers that generate lots of metadata operation (opening, closing, creating, or renaming files).   It appears we also call this Continuously Available File Server too.  Below are some links I used to learn about Scale-Out File Servers:
