    I'm really looking forward to Shared Nothing Storage Spaces. With the addition of rebalancing it looks like the perfect solution.

    I think one of the last questions was misunderstood. I believe the question was: Why would anyone deploy "traditional" storage spaces when Shared Nothing Storage Spaces will become available? (i.e. "What are the disadvantages of SNSS compared to traditional SS?")

    for those who wan´t to checkout real SDS and shared nothing / os independant, take a look at ScaleIO. it runs any version of windows from 2008 and is already elastic and can drain nodes and scales up to thousands of nodes !
