Deploying Windows Server 2012 R2 Storage Spaces on Dell PowerVault


Storage Spaces is a new storage virtualization capability introduced in Windows Server 2012 and its feature set is greatly enhanced in Windows Server 2012 R2. Storage Spaces technology uses SAS HBAs and JBODs to provide highly available storage for hosted and virtualized deployments. Storage Spaces is based on a disk pooling model. Storage pools can be created flexibly, using affordable hardware, depending on the needs of the deployment. A storage space integrates well with the rest of the features available in Windows like failover clustering for high availability, ensuring that Storage Spaces can provide a cost-effective platform for business critical storage across a variety of scenarios.

Focus of this wiki page is to provide required information to successfully deploy Windows Server 2012 R2 storage spaces using Dell PowerVault Storage, PowerEdge Server and Dell SAS 6Gb/s HBA.
