Blogger Tim Anderson helps us understand Windows 8 Storage Spaces, a confusing but powerful new feature in Microsoft’s next operating system:
“Storage Spaces is a way of virtualising disk drives. You manage physical drives in a pool of storage, and allocate virtual drives from that pool. The virtual drives can be bigger than the actual space available; this is called “thin provisioning”. When you are running out of physical space, you can add additional drives.”
Its a great read on a sometimes confusing feature.
