8. File Services and Storage > Lesson 1: Deploying Storage Spaces

Lesson 1: Deploying Storage Spaces

Virtualization of storage resources is nothing new to administrators of large enterprises who have SANs deployed within their network infrastructures. Until now, however, storage virtualization has required purchasing proprietary third-party solutions that are expensive and require you to use their own set of management tools. Such solutions not only add to the cost of your network, but also require special training to implement, manage, and maintain.

Storage Spaces, a new feature of Windows Server 2012, is designed to make storage virtualization affordable, even for small businesses. Storage Spaces is easy to deploy and manage, and it can provide your business with shared storage that can grow on demand to meet your organization’s evolving needs. This lesson explains how Storage Spaces works, describes its capabilities, and demonstrates how to implement it using common, off-the-shelf storage hardware.
