WinStorage ezine: Not your father's DFS

Cover
WinStorage ezine, from the editors of SearchWinComputing.com, offers administrators advice on how to address the storage-related challenges that are unique to Microsoft Windows server environments and infrastructures.

A Distributed File System (DFS) is an application that allows users to access files stored on the server without regard for physical location. When a user accesses a file, it is cached on their system while data is processed and then sent back to the server.

In this edition of WinStorage, from SearchWinComputing.com, Microsoft MVP, Laura E. Hunter, will outline the major advances in the areas of replication and file availability that make DFS more useful than ever before.

Hunter's "Not Your Father's DFS" article will cover:

  • The enhancements to DFS in R2
  • How DFS can meet increasing storage needs
  • The limitations that still exist with DFS
Also in this edition: "The Good News/Bad News to Dropping Price of Storage" and "Storage Management Tasks that are a Waste of Time".
