Event in Stockholm – Second Wednesday (2W): Storage Spaces Direct and Hyper Converged Online and Free! April 12 – 2017

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on April 6, 2017

2W

(in Swedish, since the event is in Swedish)

Jag och Jörgen kör ett kvälls event på LabCenter den 12:e april, då bjuder vi på lite tilltugg och 3 timmar med Storage Spaces Direct och Hyper Converged. Vi har gjort en dröse sådana installationer och vill gärna dela med oss av dom roliga delarna såväl som dom tråkiga.

Det blir snabbt fullt på plats, men du kan ju alltid titta hemifrån

Just because it is possible – Converged Hypervisor with Storage Spaces Direct on HP ProLiant Microserver

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on September 27, 2016

Earlier today at Microsoft Ignite, Microsoft announced Windows Server 2016 (see earlier posts). I was curies to see if it was possible to install Windows Server 2016 Datacenter, using Hyper-V and Storage Spaces direct to build an Converged Hypervisor based solution on 2 HP ProLiant Microservers and it did work. It is not usably in reality, since the servers are not suitable as Converged Hypervisors, but it works, and it is so fun to play with.
