Learn how to use a few PowerShell commands to turn a Windows Server 8 into an iSCSI Target.
This video snack complements the BUILD hands-on lab SAC-966H: Turning Windows Server into a Block Storage Device, and technical session SAC-449T: Building Continuously Available File Server NAS Appliances (second embed below).
This session builds on earlier presentations about the evolution of platform storage technologies and designing multi-node systems for continuous availability. These platform advances allow Microsoft partners to use industry-standard hardware to build Continuously Available Windows Server solutions at different price bands. This session will discuss considerations, options and opportunities for using the Windows Server Continuous Availability platform to build continuously-available network-attached storage (NAS) appliances, including workloads and deployment options, and new Windows Server 8 capabilities for file server and NAS appliances. The talk will also describe the branding and customization opportunities for OEMs, including description and examples of customized extensions of the initial out-of-the-box customer experience for server appliances.
