In this session, Rick will explain everything you need to know about Windows Scale Out File Server.

Storage and SANs are probably the Biggest portion of your annual IT budget. Like your closet or garage at home, it is never big enough and it's time to expand. Have you reached the point where yet another SAN is required for your IT Infrastructure? Have you considered how enterprise class commodity storage paired up with new features of Windows Server 2012 R2 can get you the best performance per dollar without having to spend massive amounts of money to your favorite SAN manufacturer? See how you can solve your storage issues while simplifying their overall administration with the use of standard tools powered by PowerShell, System Center and even in-box tools. Discover how these technologies enable new hardware designs like Cluster-In-A-Box and how they can power your hyper-v and SQL workloads for a fraction of the cost and headache of traditional block storage.

You will learn:
Demystify Block Level Storage (SANs) and what they really are
Design your own highly available SMB3 based scale out file server to service your virtualization and SQL workloads
Architect storage solutions using new hardware platforms like Cluster-in-a-box solutions for maximum IO/ps while minimizing spend
