Learn how to create a Scale-Out File Server. Scale-Out File Server is a feature that is designed to provide scale-out file shares that are continuously available for file-based server application storage.
- [Instructor] In a previous video, we created…a network virtualization switch and logical networks.…In this video, we're going to create a scale-out file share.…This is going to be used by our gateway servers.…But first we have to do some preparation such as…Add roles and features.…So we need to add the clustering role.…Go ahead and click Next until we get to Features,…and choose Failover Clustering.…Click to add the features, click Next,…and Install.…
A scale-out file share on a cluster…allows us to share the file share…amongst many different servers,…and that's what we're going to need to do…because our gateway servers…are going to both need to share the same data.…And that's what's going to make them highly available.…Once this is done adding, we'll go ahead and close it.…And then we'll go ahead and create our cluster.…Now you don't need more than one server…to create the cluster.…However, in order for it to be highly available,…you need to have at least two nodes, or two servers.…
When we create a cluster,…
