One of the big challenges facing IT organizations today is the explosion of demand for storage, which leads to rising costs and increasing management challenges. But cloud computing is a game changer and Microsoft has brought highly available, low-cost storage solutions.
Windows Server 2012 R2 creates highly available storage using only “just a bunch of disks” (JBOD) enclosures and hard disks. You can reduce the cost of storage dramatically without sacrificing performance. This datasheet has more details about software-defined storage in Windows Server 2012 R2.
Another option for managing rapid data growth is a hybrid cloud approach. StorSimple hybrid storage arrays are deployed in on-premises datacenters, using Microsoft Azure Storage for low-impact incremental capacity expansion and automated off-site data protection.
