Course Overview
Hello. My name is Robert McMillen. I would like to welcome you to my course Commodity SAN: Storage in Windows Server 2016. Storage can grow out of control for any organization. Along with growth comes expense. Windows Server 2016 can help you build a storage area network, which provides you with unlimited storage that can be divided up amongst the many servers in your data center. It does this for far less cost than purchasing a name-brand SAN by utilizing your existing hardware and iSCSI technology. With Windows Server 2016, you can also add clustering and replication to keep your data redundant and highly available. And to protect your data from hackers, you can also encrypt your traffic and the data itself. By the end of this course, you'll be able to set up your storage area network with the piece of mind knowing you did it right and you did it with security and redundancy. You'll also know how to save your company money in news ways that were previously not possible. I hope you'll join me in learning these new powerful and useful features Windows Server offers in my course Commodity SAN: Storage in Windows Server 2016.
