Microsoft File Services on Windows Server 2012 R2 Deployment Considerations

This guide addresses the creation and operation of a Server Message Block (SMB) file-sharing solution that uses the most current version of SMB with industry-standard x86 servers running the Windows Server® 2012 R2 operating system (OS). It incorporates best practices from both Nimble Storage and Microsoft to offer a high-performance and highly available network-attached storage (NAS) infrastructure.

 

The guide provides instructions with technical tips. It covers the general file server and its multiple options to address the specific needs of a wide range of environments, from a single Windows® file server to a Windows Failover Clustering (WFC) file services environment. The guide assumes that the audience has a basic understanding of Fibre Channel (FC) or iSCSI concepts, Windows environments, and Nimble Storage® arrays.
