Complete re-implementation of the Windows Storage Pool functionality (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I have no further details, other than what's seen on the author's site, posted on Sep 19 2011 apparently. With all such products, I always wonder about things like speed under actual use (can it handle multiple HD streams without hiccups, while data re-shuffling is underway?), we'll have to wait and see, how long we wait is also apparently unknown. Below is a cut-and-paste of all the text from that site, Sep 25, 2011 (the site also has some screenshots as well):

Complete re-implementation of the Windows Storage Pool functionality (spoilers)

by BRAHIM on SEPTEMBER 19, 2011

 

I have been fairly productive over the past weekend as I completed the re-implementation of the Windows version of the FlexRAID Storage Pooling functionality.
I made the decision to undertake this effort about two weeks ago and went in feet first not knowing what I was getting myself into.

Well, things went a lot smoother than feared.

Key features about this new implementation:

  • Greater stability

  • The Storage Pool can now act as a true NTFS or FAT/FAT32 drive

  • Full NTFS security and full ACLs

  • Better integration into the Windows ecosystem

  • Full native support for WHS v2 and Windows Storage Server (fully manageable through the dashboard)

Good info, I have high hopes for integration with the WHS dashboard.

 

I tried flexraid back when I was running 2008r2 and decided it was just too dang complicated.

Hmmm...I don't know if I can put my faith in someone who makes a post on 9-19 but doesn't talk like a pirate. There's something just not right about that. ;-)
