“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.

  3. Have a flexible storage platform that can make a transition to Hyper-V even easier.**
