|Storage Spaces Shipping with Next Windows|
|Monday, 30 July 2012|
A new Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 feature named Storage Spaces enables a group of inexpensive commodity disks to appear as a single disk, which Microsoft refers to as storage virtualization. The feature can provide fault tolerance and could prove especially useful for small or medium businesses deploying Windows Server 2012 that are unable to invest in network-attached storage, or large-scale service providers looking to reduce the cost required with complex storage technologies. With Windows 8, Storage Spaces will appeal to highly technical consumers who build their own PCs. Storage Spaces also provides an interesting opportunity for hardware partners to make complementary disks or enclosures. However, as the feature is, it should be used cautiously until proven reliable.
