Software Defined Storage in the Next Release of Windows Server
The storage industry is going through strategic tectonic shifts. In this session, we walk through and recap Microsoft’s Software Defined Storage journey – how we got started, what our customers are telling us, where we are now, and how cloud cost and scale inflection points are shaping the journey. We explore how Microsoft is channeling learnings, from hosting some of the largest data centers in the planet, towards private cloud storage solutions for service providers and enterprises. We cover some Windows Server storage scenarios around low-cost storage on standard hardware, disaster recovery, QoS, management, cloud scale resiliency, and availability enhancements.
