Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V
Synology DiskStation and RackStation passed Windows Server 2012 certification. Businesses are able to leverage the functionalities of Microsoft-certified storage solutions including: live storage migration, capability, Hyper-V Replica, and storage capacity.
Businesses that deploy servers with Windows Server 2012 certification are entitled for:
* Testing environment and specifications for VAAI:
ESXi server specifications: Intel® Core™ i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz Quad Core; 8G RAM; Intel 82574L Gigabit x2 NIC; OS: ESXi 5.0.0 504890; Motherboard: MSI MS-7740
This cutting edge technology removes the middle man and allows your Windows server to offload data transfer to DiskStation without the need to have your data go through the server host. By using ODX, the speed for data manipulation dramatically increases and since the data transfer is offloaded, the CPU usage of the host server and the network bandwidth utilization shrink to minimum values, allowing the server to handle more important tasks.
Copying files on the same volume have never been so fast. With ODX enabled, speed gains are recorded to be almost 20 times faster than before and save up to 99.9% of the original data size at same time. Also, on your Hyper-V virtual environments, ODX will help to speed up virtual disk operations such as creation, expansion and merging.
