Being able to protect your Private cloud is one of the more important things you can do. With so many moving parts how do you approach this. If you are leveraging System Center 2012 for the many other components of your infrastructure, than I would highly recommend you look at Data Protection Manager (DPM)for two reasons.
While DPM can protect a variety of workloads from SQL, SharePoint, Exchange bulk of your of the workloads in your cloud is going to virtualized. DPM is fantastic at protecting your Hyper-V hosts and their virtual guests that are running on them. Today’s post will focus on the protecting your virtual infrastructure.

When you start to think of building a private cloud into your datacenters, you might naturally think you need run out and buy a SAN. While you still may want to go buy a SAN, with Windows Server 2012 you do not necessarily need to.

This is mainly due to the new SMB 3.0 protocol built-in to the server, it really has made storage a first class citizen in Windows Server 2012. So for todays post I am going to take a look at how to build a Windows Server 2012 storage environment using Storage Pools and inexpensive Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) disks to provide the necessary storage backend for your private cloud infrastructure.
