Durham, NC, September 11, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Administrators can be reluctant to move to new software from the versions they currently run, so the benefits need to outweigh potential hassles. Principled Technologies (PT) compared the storage capacity of a Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd cluster before and after an upgrade from Microsoft Windows Server 2016 to the new Windows Server 2019 version of Storage Spaces Direct. They found that the upgrade provided strong data compression ratios of up to 9.8:1. PT also quantified the amount of effort the upgrade would require, finding it took less than 3 hours and only 25 steps.
According to the report, “The new OS let the server store data in dramatically less space, and the upgrade process was simple and quick.”
