Storage Spaces? Yes it’s a new technology which is introduced by Microsoft and which also known as Storage Pool.
I would like thank Microsoft to provide us the LAB to see and learn How Windows Server 2012 implements a new technology Known as Storage Spaces or Storage Pool.
Storage Space is a storage subsystem and it is rich of great features, Storage Space is available in Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Clients. Storage Space is simple to use and also has a feature the virtual disk can grow dynamically, if we choose thin provisioning while configuring it.
This is our effort to help you guys with the detailed steps which will help you during implementing this feature.
Special Thanks to Microsoft Tech Lab
