Storage Spaces Cost-Effective Business Critical Storage File Based Storage High Performance SMB Protocol for SQL Server and Hyper-V Storage over Ethernet networks
Continuously Available File and Block Storage Synchronization: Work Folders and DFS-R Failover Clustering with Hyper-V Storage Spaces with SSD tiering and caching New Storage Management APIs End to end storage management with SCVMM Simple Setup and Configuration (OOBE) Protocol Improvements: SMB 3.0 and iSCSI Target

Disk resiliency with storage spaces Simple Data is striped across disks. Mirror Data mirrored to a duplicate disk. Two and three-way mirroring. Mirrored configuration with clustering for workloads. Parity Data striped to all-but one of the disks. The remaining disk contains a checksum bit enabling data to be generated for a failed disk. Parity with clustering for archives.
SSDs and HDDs used as different tiers. Windows automatically tracks data temperature and moves them at sub-file level. Write-back cache improves performance for real-world workloads. Only hot regions of a file (VHD, database, etc.) need to move to SSDs, the cold regions can reside on HDDs. Ability to pin files to different tiers Tiered space
Efficiently store, transfer and back up fewer bits.

Note: While customer can install OS, distributor or reseller must affix COA before server and ROK are sent to customer. Software does not have to be preinstalled. 1.OEM ships server to distributor without an OS installed. 2.OEM ships Windows Server ROK directly to distributor. 3.Distributor offers OEM server hardware with OEM Windows Server ROK to resellers. 4.Reseller orders ROK kits and hardware from distributor, and may maintain inventory on premises. Reseller affixes the COA, installs the OS if requested and ships to the customer. 36 Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Standard ROK 36 WSS 2012 Standard & WSS 2012 R2 Standard Edition is available on ROK
