The new operating system aims at providing a secure-by-default platform to build IoT services and thus avoiding the pitfalls that made such devices so prone even to unsophisticated attacks that rogue organizations use them to build botnets or to compromise users’ privacy.

Le prime versioni di ReFS non brillavano per velocità ma con Windows Server 2016 ReFS è diventato il file system raccomandato per workload importanti come i cluster di storage S2D o per le infrastrutture iperconvergenti basate su Hyper-V, promuovendolo ormai senza riserve all’uso in produzione.

Nel mondo di Windows Server è certamente inusuale discutere di file-system alternativi a NTFS, discussioni più comuni nel mondo Linux [...]
