  • Thanks for this, was an interesting read.

  • I was trying to recreate what you have described in the white paper using a Windows server 2012 with 4,8 and 16 drives and add them in storage space. I ran into one issue while executing following:

    New-VirtualDisk –StoragePoolFriendlyName StoragePool1 –FriendlyName VirtualDisk1 –ResiliencySettingName Striping –UseMaximumSize

    The “ResiliencySettingName” value “Striping” does not exist. The possible value of “ResiliencySettingName” is “Simple, Mirror, or Parity”. See technet.microsoft.com/.../hh848643.aspx

    Can you please give details on how you created “ResiliencySetting” for striping.

    Thanks,
