“Wait a second, Kevin… you say ‘with’ Windows Server 2012, I can reduce my virtualization storage costs?”

Keith's articleThat’s what I said.  In today’s edition of our blog series, “VMware or Microsoft?”, my friend Keith Mayer describes how you can use Windows Server 2012 as your storage servers for clustered NFS storage. 

And with that solution, you’ll:

  2. Save significant amounts of money ($$$), and
