Windows 8 Storage Spaces detailed: pooling redundant disk space for all
When Microsoft killed Windows Home Server's "Drive Extender" technology, we mourned its loss but held up hope that the company would persevere with the concept. The company has done just that with a new Windows 8 feature called Storage Spaces, described in a lengthy post to its Building Windows 8 blog.
With Storage Spaces, physical disks to be grouped together into pools, and pools are then carved up into spaces, which are formatted with a regular filesystem and are used day-to-day just like regular disks.

this is so cool for home usage... definitely getting W8 for storage server
more detailed screenies at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2...fficiency.aspx
define 10TB pool for docs&pics&personalmovies in MIRROR
define 50TB poof for media&other in PARITY
add random disks, all different sizes, over SATA, IDE, USB, etc; doesn't matter; start using drive pools as if they are one big *ss disk... WITH FAULT TOLERANCE.
looking forward to this feature.
this is a software feature similar to hardware DROBO PRO which costs $500-1500!
