Scott Johnson added another post to the Storage Server blog, this time focusing on the History of the Windows Storage Server, all the way up to the Windows Unified Data Storage Server 2003 Refresh, released in August of 2007. Did you know, for instance, that the WUDSS 2003 Refresh introduced support for iSCSI dual-active clustering, 16 Terabyte iSCSI LUNs, OOBE customization and Software RAID support?
He also did a great job of describing all the different editions of Windows Server 2003 and Windows Unified Data Storage Server 2003, highlighting the different features available in each edition. Can you name the four editions of WSS 2003 and the two editions of WUDSS 2003 available today? Can you tell which of the six editions include support for Clustering? Which include the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target?
