Cloud Storage

Data volumes are exploding, increasing storage costs and the headaches of storage management. Microsoft is on a mission to transform storage and deliver a new range of solutions.

If you’re running a storage-area network (SAN) environment, Microsoft products integrate with and support new technologies, such as Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX), to help maximize these traditional solutions.

Windows Server 2012 also provides virtualized file-based storage suitable for application data. These file-based storage configurations can deliver 1,000,000 IOPS, and continue to provide uninterrupted service to workloads like Hyper-V and SQL Server, even through the loss of disks or a server. New options in Microsoft Azure, such as Microsoft Azure Backup, can also help prevent data loss.
