[Whitepaper] Understand Microsoft Hyper Converged solution

The last two months, I worked with my friend Charbel Nemnom on a whitepaper about Hyper-Convergence, especially by using Microsoft technologies.

First of all, this document contains an overview of the IT infrastructure improvement in the last ten years past from before virtualization to Hyper-Convergence. Then we describe how works Microsoft Hyper-Converged solution by talking about Network convergence, RDMA, SMB, Storage Spaces Direct, ReFS, Hyper-V and so on. To finish, we explain how to deploy this kind of solution on four Nano Servers by using PowerShell. This document will be updated related to the new Windows Server 2016 build.

It was really great to work on this document. We have worked deeper on all new stuff that Microsoft has released and it was really cool. I’d like to thank also Charbel who is friendly and brilliant.

I hope you will really like this document. I’m opened to all comments and questions that you have about this Whitepaper.

Good reading ! 🙂
