63 C H A P T E R 3 | Storage C H A P T E R 3 Storage By Ned Pyle, Claus Joergensen, and Matt Garson The introduction of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview brings with it several new storage capabilities to the platform. References to Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview in this chapter refer to the TP4 release. This chapter describes four of these improvements with technical information provided by insiders at Microsoft. Ned Pyle provides some up-to-date information about Storage Replica that goes beyond that provided in Windows Server Technical Preview Guide for Storage Replica (available on Microsoft TechNet at https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt126104.aspx). Claus Joergensen and Matt Garson examine Storage Spaces Shared Nothing and how you can use it to build highly available storage systems using only local storage instead of drives that are physically connected to all storage nodes. Storage Replica Storage Replica is a new feature in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview with which you can set up storage-agnostic, block-level, synchronous replication between clusters or servers for disaster recovery. You also can use it to stretch a failover cluster across sites for high availability. Synchronous replication makes it possible for you to mirror data in physical sites with crash-consistent volumes, ensuring zero data loss at the file-system level. Asynchronous replication gives you the ability to extend sites beyond metropolitan ranges, albeit with the possibility of data loss. Storage Replica does not operate at a file level as does DFS Replication. Instead, it replicates data blocks and is therefore immune to issues of file locks, open handles, and so on. More info Because Storage Replica is a new feature in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview and the software-defined datacenter, there are no previous enhancements. For a full step-by-step scenario guide to configuring Storage Replica, search for "Storage Replica" on Microsoft TechNet.
