This video introduces another storage solution available in Server 2016. Learn how the Scale-Out File Server, first introduced in Server 2012, can be used to improve access to large application files on network storage. The performance and fault-tolerant benefits of this configuration are shown.
- [Narrator] A storage replica was one way…to make sure that your file shares remain…as available as possible,…and it's all about disaster recovery.…And that's important, especially with user file stores…where tons of files are being created.…Lots of files and lots of directories constantly…being updated and changed, mostly small files…but several of them, and these files mostly change…when the user closes the file.…But let's take a look at a different data need.…Applications like data-based servers…or virtualization servers don't create…and delete a lot of files.…
They use a very small number of generally quite large files…that are always open and constantly…being modified while they're open.…What's important for these applications is finding…the fastest and most reliable way to access…and maintain these large files.…I want to briefly introduce you to Scale-Out File Server…as a solution to this scenario.…This isn't for user file shares.…It's designed for these high-end applications…like databases and Hyper-V.…
