We are continuing with our IT Camps in the US that focuses on Windows Server 2012. As I’ve pointed out in the past, we worked hard to hit as many cities as possible, but we know it’s not possible to get to every city in the US. With that in mind, I worked with our marketing team to record the sessions that we will be delivering at the IT Camps and make them available On-Demand. My team mate, John Weston and I took a day at Microsoft Studios and recorded all the content – PowerPoint delivery and demos that will be delivered at the US IT Camps. Feel free to visit the IT Camps On-Demand Series Landing Page for all the videos. This is the first of four videos in the third set in this series.
This session focuses on Windows Server 2012 Storage Spaces and Thin Provisioning.
Abstract Windows Server 2012: Storage Spaces and Thin Provisioning:
One of the most common uses of Windows Servers is for File and Print Services. Windows Server 2012 has huge improvements in the Storage capabilities as well. Storage Spaces happens to be one of these new capabilities that allows an organization to group different storage devices into a pool from which to create thinly provisioned volumes. Another new capability is data de-duplication that allows for storage savings by reclaiming physical space use on the hard drive by multiple copies of the same file.
