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.
While Microsoft products continue to evolve to help maximize the performance and utilization of storage-area networks (SANs) with new technologies, such as Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX), Microsoft offers a variety of additional storage solutions.
Windows Server 2012 R2 provides virtualized file-based storage suitable for application data. These file-based storage configurations, built on industry-standard hardware, can deliver 1,000,000+ IOPS while providing uninterrupted service to workloads like Hyper-V and SQL Server – even through the loss of a disk or server.
