    White Paper: Windows Server High Availability with Microsoft MPIO

    Language:
    English
    A growing number of organizations require that their data be available 24x7, year round. To meet this requirement, centralized storage must be readily available and resilient to outages. The Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) framework provides support for multiple data paths to storage to improve fault tolerance of connection to storage, and may in some cases provide greater throughput.
