  1. Storage Spaces Tiering and QoS Integration

    From what I understand so far, SOFS Storage QoS operates independently from Storage Spaces automated tiering.

    Storage Spaces automated tiering optimization process should take into consideration VHDXs QoS policies in order to meet the IOPS objective. If tiering only looks at the number of time a certain piece of data has been accessed between the tier optimization executions, the data could possibly be not placed on the optimal tier to meet the performance target.

    If the SSD tier could be balanced fairly between VHDXs based on QoS policy targets, that would most likely ensure more consistent IO performance.

  2. File tiering statistics

    In 2012 R2, tiering statistics in Storage Spaces are only provided when the file is pinned to a specific tier. It would be beneficial to know how much of a file is on each tier when it's managed automatically.

  3. (Microsoft Suggested Idea) Storage Replica simulated failover

    Is the ability to simulate failover with Storage Replica important to you? In other words, the ability to temporarily create a writable copy of the destination volume - without actually performing a direction switch - and access data on that volume. When done testing, you would then discard the temporary volume. During testing, the real source and destination volumes continue to replicate.

    Keep in mind that this feature may prevent other SR capabilities from being made, due to resourcing. Naturally, if you have other features you want in SR that are more important to you, do not vote yes for…

  4. Scale out general purpose file server

    I just watched the SMB Direct Ignite presentation on Channel 9. Really cool stuff. I would like to use the SMB Direct solution to build a general purpose scale out file server and not just to store VMs. With 2012 R2, Microsoft did not recommend the scale out file server solution using a shared SAS fabric as a general purpose file server because of the limitations with the Cluster File system. Now that ReFS is being used as the clustered file system, has this limitation been lifted? If so, have improvements been made to ReFS in Windows Server 2016 to…
