Optimizing your storage set up is an extremely effective way to boost your workplace efficiency and reliability and the best part of all: you shouldn’t need to pay for anything as all the tools you need are already built-in to Windows Server!
Storage tends to be one of those ‘set and forget’ things that admins often don’t bother to change once set up. However, in this upcoming webinar from Altaro/Hornetsecurity on August 11, you’ll learn how to utilize the blazing-fast and reliable storage technologies residing within the modern Windows Server stack.
Presented by Microsoft MVPs Andy Syrewicze and Dider Van Hoye, this free online event will explain what you need to do to modernize your storage infrastructure including Storage Innovations with Storage Spaces Direct & Azure Stack HCI, ReFS, PMem, QUIC & SMB, and more!
As always with Altaro/Hornetsecurity webinars, this event will be presented live twice on the day (August 11, 2021) to give as many people as possible the chance to attend live and ask your questions to the guys on air.
Windows Server storage technologies have come a long way since the days of Windows Server 2008 R2 and SMBv1/v2 – it’s no longer your grandpa's file server. It's time to level-up and unlock a potential you never knew was there!
