Microsoft announced a few OneDrive enhancements, including storage-option additions, plus a new "Personal Vault" feature for added security assurance.
It's time again for Brien to perform a major storage upgrade on his Hyper-V hosts. But this time, he's taking a new approach.
Microsoft announced this week that it has improved the preview version of its AzCopy tool to better handle Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 data.
The trickiest thing about making a stretched cluster work with Hyper-V is getting the underlying storage to work properly.
Microsoft on Tuesday announced the general availability of Azure Data Box Edge and Azure Data Box Gateway.

Earlier, Brien walked through the steps of preparing a physical Windows Server 2016 machine for a storage refresh. Now, he shows how to complete the process, all the way to OS restoration.
To spruce up some aging lab hardware, Brien decided to make the jump to all-flash storage. Here's a walk-through of the first half of the process.
Microsoft wants about 7GB of your PC's storage space to keep Windows 10 up to date and reliable.
The next step is to delete the OEM partition between the C: volume and your unallocated space. You'll need to use an old command-line tool for that.
As Brien explains, creating a virtual disk in Windows Storage Spaces is akin to creating a map to the underlying raw storage that will be used by the volumes on the virtual disk.
In this introduction to Microsoft's Storage Spaces technology, Brien walks you through the steps of creating a storage space and a virtual disk.
