The Quanta MESOS CB220 runs on Windows Storage Server 2012 R2. Our sample shipped with Storage Server 2012 (sans R2) since the updated operating system package wasn't available when we first received the system.

The system has eight physical cores running at 2.4 GHz with a powerful storage system. With that much multitasking power, you can run applications on the system as well, like SQL Server.

Storage Server 2012 (and 2012 R2) easily configures for iSCSI, and other network protocols.

The add-on JBOD systems can be configured a number of ways through Storage Spaces.

The system's failover configuration is the major feature. One step past high availability, continuous availability means the only event to take your CB220 down is a total power outage, but most systems at this level should have battery backed power with a high availability network to go with it.

The storage is divided into two sections. The first is the operating system drive, and the second is the shared storage that is identical on both nodes.

Windows Storage Server 2012 supports two newer technologies that make file based storage more efficient, SMB 3.0 and data deduplication.
