SMB 3.0 implementation


Recommended Posts

I have been notified that along with S2012 and Win8 release, Microsoft has implemented SMB 3.0.

My server - N40L with WHS2011 and 5 x ST3000DM001 + SSD830 is not able to provide stutter free streaming to media players (Dune, PCH, mede8er) I mean only high bitrate 3D material. All 2D BR rips or 1080p mkvs are fine. 3D titles are more demanding and it seems that SMB 2.1 can't handle that.

I know it's SMB 2.1 issue and it's been proved that streaming with NFS is flawless even on the same hardware.


The problem I have is that having Stablebit Drivepool DE replacement excludes NFS and I can only use SMB.

If new SMB 3.0 provides significant improvements in terms of streaming performance I may give a try to migrate to Win8 or S2012 if short on budget.

Any advise appreciated.
