Use individual physical disks to create a single virtual disk you can use for storage. This type of virtualization technology is generally used in SAN and NAS technologies, but Storage Spaces offers similar options on a smaller scale. Learn what types of pools exist, how to create a storage pool, configure the pool, and how to recover when a single disk in the pool fails.
- [Instructor] If you have a few…unused or unwanted USB disks available…you can make use of those with a technology…called Storage Spaces.…Storage Spaces is fairly new.…Initially offered in Windows 8 and Server 2012…that lets users combine disk space…from multiple hard disks to provide storage redundancy.…These can be USB drives or larger external drives.…With Storage Spaces, data is saved across multiple drives…using virtual disk arrays.…This is similar to the older RAID systems…and can provide fault tolerance through parity…as well as mirroring through data duplication.…
You'll need one or more physical disks to get started.…While they can be USB drives,…they can also be serial ATA drives…or serially attached SCSI drives.…These disks are used to create a storage pool…which is stored in a storage space.…That space is given a single drive letter…and treated by the operating system as a logical disk.…I'll show you how to create a pool now…and talk you through some of the…more technical aspects as I do.…I've already connected my two external drives…
