Windows Server 2012 R2
Gridstore is one of the storage services that provides limitless storage for users, which is again scalable and simple, built on the basis of hardware commodity. Hyper-V, earlier known by the name Windows Server Virtualization, can create virtualization machines on a 64 bit system. Recently, Gridstore announced its Windows support for Windows Server 2012 R2. With the support of their patent program Server-side Virtual Controller Technology (SVCT), Gridstore has designed a storage solution that would help with the storage facility in the Windows Server 2012 R2.
Gridstore 3.0 delivers impressive IOPS along with a scale out block storage. Moreover, it delivers a massive throughput and linear scalability of 3PB, with 12TB increase. The latest innovation that Gridstore brings into the Microsoft ecosystem is a very straight forward approach to storage management along with the aid of Windows Server 2012 management via VM machines.
The strange functionality introduced in Windows Server 2012 by Gridstore is one of the ground-breaking functionalities. Brad Anderson, the corporate vice president of Microsoft, said that they were more than happy to have this support included. Moreover, Gridstore would be designed in such a way that it addresses the usual architectural issues that come up in between virtualization server and storage services. This will also look into the performance in the Hyper V ecosystem at an affordable price and scalability. Some of the features that are supported through this plan are the following.
Seamless Management Per VM
With the help of GridControl MMC snap-in services like Snapshot, reproduction is combined with the help of Microsoft tools like Hyper V for every VM environment.
With the help of Cluster Shared Volumes, Gridstore is able to provide support for SCSI block devices in a single Windows Server, Microsoft scale out file cluster and Hyper V hosts.
Windows Live Support
The requests from the input output devices are prioritized on the basis of application in an organization. They also take care of end to end support of the system along with storage support.
Microsoft Hyper V
In order to optimize the performance of the input output devices, software like Hyper V are utilized. The software will look after the performance of each device in a VM environment along with the H-class storage node.
The complexity of the storage space is minimized in Windows Server 2012 R2. Gridstore will be 100 percent compatible with the Server along with the standard Ethernet infrastructure and storage nodes. Hence, it can be said that Gridstore has planned Windows support for Windows Server in the best possible way.
