The repository aggregates physical storage devices into cohesive units, making it easier to add memory capacity when additional storage is plugged in. Users can also mix devices and storage sizes here.
Storage space allows users to create virtual drives that share the same characteristics as physical devices, such as being plugged in, removed, backed up, and managed like traditional physical drives. In addition, it also comes with a secondary function in backup, data recovery (backup).
More than 2000 PowerShell commands (cmdlets) added in Win Server 2012 allow administrators to manage the Windows Server environment better. The latest update also improves Web access, scheduling, support for disconnected sessions, and other new features.
