Hey, this is Mike Pfeiffer and welcome to this course on Implementing Windows Server 2016 Storage Solutions.

One of the most important resources within a server deployment is storage. For production servers and applications, you need to make sure you’re implementing the right technologies so you can prevent performance bottle necks and ensure that your storage resources are resilient to hardware failures.

In this course we’ll start off by configuring local disks and volumes, and we’ll cover the process of creating and formatting disks, understanding which file systems you should be using, and how to implement software based raid for disk redundancy.

Next, we’ll move on to server storage technologies like iSCSI, and we’ll see how to build an iSCSI SAN solution using nothing but windows server 2016 machines. We’ll also deploy storage spaces, which is a modern approach to creating pools of storage that can implement redundancy and improve performance. We’ll even setup server to server replication for disaster recovery using a new feature in windows server 2016 called storage replica.

In the final module, we’ll take a close look at data deduplication and see how to drastically free up tons of space on existing storage volumes, which is great for lowering costs and for making backup and restore operations run as fast as possible.

Now, in this course I’m going to show you how to do all of these things using both graphical tools, as well as through an automated approach with PowerShell. I’ll even show you exactly how I setup my virtual lab environment so you can follow along.

So whether you’re just looking to pick up new skills for a project at work, or if you’re looking to get certified, this course will give you the skills you need to understand the key storage concepts on windows server 2016.
