Software defined storage (SDS) delivers an innovative new way for IT administrators and decision makers to deploy storage at the datacenter using standard server, storage and networking components. Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces is no different, leveraging Dell server and storage hardware and the Microsoft Windows Server.TM

Ensuring that all solution components work together as intended can introduce significant administrative and management overhead- even downtime. To optimize the SDS experience using Microsoft Storage Spaces technology, Dell has developed the Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces family of storage components that can function as building blocks for individual, customer installations, but also as the foundation for turn-key solutions.

Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces is designed with flexibility in mind, but also built to ensure that only validated and tested combinations or components are used for the storage stack.
