Designing systems for continuous availability - multi-node with remote file storage
Play Designing systems for continuous availability - multi-node with remote file storage
The file server role of Windows Server 8 has been redesigned to enable scalable, highly available, and fault tolerant storage for server app workloads, such as Hyper-V and SQL Server, on remote file shares. This session will discuss the new active-active file server with improved scalability and simplified management; describe the transparent failover feature which makes file shares continuously available for server apps, and details on the extensions to Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) for backup and recovery of app data stored on file shares. The talk will also review sample entry-level and high-end system configurations and their potential performance capabilities.
