SMB3 is the latest version of a Server Message Block protocol that was introduced back in Windows Server 2012. Each release included some new features and improvements, so now SMB3 comes with a set of such useful capabilities like SMB Transparent Failover, SMB Encryption, VSS for SMB file shares, SMB Direct (SMB over RDMA), and SMB Multichannel. All of this makes SMB3 a perfect option when creating a Highly Available Network Share within the Windows Server Failover Cluster.
