High-performance and Reliable File Storage for Virtualization and Applications

With Windows Storage Server® 2012 R2 you can deploy and manage storage for server applications such as Hyper-V, SQL and IIS in the same manner you manage storage for traditional file serving. Windows Storage Server 2012 helps reduce the cost of storage significantly by delivering FiberChannel/SAN-like performance on industry-standard hardware with excellent throughput and multiple redundant paths from the server to the storage. In addition, it includes advanced capabilities such as on-line corruption repairs and storage pooling to enhance its reliability. Best of all, your organization will be able to leverage existing skillsets and easily deploy, manage and provision application storage in the same way as it would for their file shares.

Flexible, Cost-effective Options for Shared Storage

Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 includes a robust range of file serving and storage capabilities. It addresses heterogeneous environments, enables more efficient storage utilization and is delivered as a turnkey, file based storage solution on industry standard hardware. Delivering a similar level of performance and reliability as more expensive storage solutions, it offers unified storage with support for both file (SMB and NFS) and block (iSCSI) protocols, allows for a flexible mix of configurations and enables efficient storage utilization with thin provisioning and data de-duplication technologies. Allowing you to manage storage in the same way as Windows Server workloads, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 takes advantage of your Windows Server management skill sets and tools including Active Directory, PowerShell and System Center.

Continuous Availability for Enterprise-class Operations

Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 helps preserve uptime by enduring failures, at multiple tiers, including storage, network and compute, without noticeable service interruption. Organizations of all sizes will be able to benefit from higher levels of availability with transparent failover of applications and the ability to maintain clustered environments without service disruption. Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 offers high levels of availability, reliability, and performance that were traditionally only seen in datacenter deployments, but are valuable to customers of all sizes.
