Configuring Multi-Resilient Volume with Storage Spaces



  • alt text
    First introduced in Microsoft Windows Server 2012, Storage Spaces is a feature providing fault tolerance to virtual disks using mirroring, parity, or even both. Basically, it serves as a distributed, software RAID aggregating the drives in the pool. Thus, it becomes a perfect fit for building Multi-Resilient Tier on Microsoft Windows Server 2016.

    Read the full article by Vitalii Feshchenko, a support Engineer at StarWind, to learn how to configure Multi-Resilient Volume on Microsoft Windows Server 2016 using Storage Spaces.

    Correct. S2D is gone from non-GA WS2016.

    Storage Spaces Direct

    Storage Spaces Direct is not included in Windows Server, version 1709. If you call Enable-ClusterStorageSpacesDirect or its alias Enable-ClusterS2D, on a server running Windows Server, version 1709, you will receive an error with the message "The requested operation is not supported". It is also not supported to introduce servers running Windows Server, version 1709 into a Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct deployment.
