A new wave of hardware is planned to be released by Microsoft’s industry partners with Windows Server 2012 designed to provide a true volume platform for Continuous Availability. Come to this session to find out the details about what hardware is inside these new “Cluster-in-a-Box” systems and see prototypes up close and running live demos. These systems combine server blades, shared storage, internal cabling, and redundant power supplies into a single chassis targeted at the volume server market. They provide expansion slots to optionally incorporate RDMA-capable NICs that, when combined with the right storage drives and controllers, CPUs, and chipsets will allow Windows Server 2012 to move data at bus and wire speeds from the drives across the network. This new hardware, when combined with Windows Server 2012, will enable game-changing possibilities for your next systems. Come learn all the details and see what you can start to look for in product offerings from your industry partners. #TEWSV310
