Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 2 (TP2) and Storage Quality of Service (QoS)


 

Storage Quality of Service (Storage QoS) is a new feature in the upcoming Windows Server 2016 that provides a way to centrally monitor and manage storage performance for virtual machines. The feature automatically improves storage resource fairness between multiple virtual machines using the same file server cluster and allows specific minimum and maximum performance goals (Storage QoS policies) to be configured in units of normalized 8KB IOPs.
