Get affordable, high-performance software-defined storage

Reduce storage costs and scale your datacenter with the software-defined storage capabilities of Windows Server 2016.

Reduce storage cost

Build highly available, scalable, software-defined storage solutions at a fraction of the cost of a storage area network (SAN) or network-attached storage (NAS). Storage Spaces Direct lets you use industry-standard servers with local storage.

Create affordable business continuity

Prepare for the worst using synchronous storage replication for disaster recovery across datacenters.

Ensure storage resources for critical apps

Centrally manage and monitor storage performance, control workload access to storage resources, and keep noisy neighbors from impacting performance using storage Quality of Service (QoS) policies.

Reduce capacity needs and cost structure with deduplication

Use improved data deduplication capabilities to support volume sizes up to 64 TB and file sizes up to 1 TB, plus gain volume space savings of up to 90 percent.
