VMware or Microsoft?–Reduce VMware Storage Costs WITH Windows Server 2012

“Wait a second, Kevin… you say ‘with’ Windows Server 2012, I can reduce my virtualization storage costs?”

Keith's articleThat’s what I said.  In today’s edition of our blog series, “VMware or Microsoft?”, my friend Keith Mayer describes how you can use Windows Server 2012 as your storage servers for clustered NFS storage.  
And with that solution, you’ll:

  1. Get nearly the same performance as a high-end SAN,
  2. Save significant amounts of money ($$$), and
  3. Have a flexible storage platform that can make a transition to Hyper-V even easier.**


** Yeah, I’m not saying you have to move to Hyper-V.  But just in case.  Smile
