    Given AMD EPYC Rome's splash on the hardware scene with Microsoft being right there to announce EPYC Rome in Azure on the same day as the AMD announcing the product I think this should happen sooner than later. :)

    The cost/benefit ratio does not fit IMO.

    Having a SMB background, I've seen quite a bit of the desktop deployed as a "server" scenario.

    For folks serious about setting up labs/testing for shared VHDX deploy on Windows Server trial ISOs and/or VHDX.

    I just read the TechNet article for setting Nano up on bare metal. I must admit that I don't get it? There is no OS on the newly configured RAID 1 array a normal host OS would go on. The instructions do not make it clear how we go about doing that!

    Shared Nothing Live Migration would be the feature being requested here?

    TP3 should have this option now?

    In a cluster setting the dongle would need to be resident on a non-clustered host. This would involve USB over Ethernet. There are excellent, and relatively inexpensive, third party utilities out there to accomplish this.

    In a standalone setting we use said third party utility to provide the same service either via the host or a remotely located PC/Server.

    Essentially providing a sandbox feature to allow a full spool-up of the replicated resources a la Veeam? That would be a nice feature to have however wouldn't a proper DRP require failover and failback as part of the initial setup process anyway?

    I asked for this in 2012 beta then R2 beta and now not so much. :)

    The requirement for three is based on the need to have more 50% +1 disk online (as I recall) if one enclosure goes offline. Having two JBODs does not allow for that.

    I'd be happy with a good PowerShell commandlet set. :)
