Tap Room meeting: Build a highly available Hyper-V cluster with just 2 physical servers using Microsoft Clustered Storage Spaces

22 January, 11 am ET / 4 pm GMT
Host: Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind Software Inc.

Building a Hyper-V cluster may seem a lofty goal if you only have 2 physical servers and no storage hardware.
Join Max Kolomyeytsev, StarWind Product Manager to learn how to configure Microsoft clustered storage spaces without dedicated storage hardware and how to then deploy a Hyper-V cluster using this storage. All with just 2 physical servers.

Microsoft Clustered Storage Spaces and StarWind Virtual SAN: For a Complete Software-Defined Storage Solution

Date: Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET
Speakers: Jon Toigo, Toigo Partners International LLC, Anatoly Vilchinskiy, StarWind Software Inc.

Microsoft is enabling software-defined storage to work with its own hypervisor computing meme, building on its SMB 3.0 protocol and Storage Spaces technology. While the approach has its merits, building from the familiar to newer storage architectures, the resulting storage infrastructure is more of a scale out NAS than a Virtual SAN. With StarWind Virtual SAN technology, complimentary to Microsoft Hyper-V, a Virtual SAN may be implemented in a virtual Microsoft environment that delivers better resource utilization and greater overall cost efficiency.

Join us for this discussion of the strengths and limitations of Microsoft Clustered Storage Spaces and how a Virtual SAN from StarWind Software can complement and improve on the infrastructure.
