There are many compelling reasons for server applications, such as Hyper-V, to store their data on a file share, but this cannot be done if it compromises the application’s data backup and recovery strategy. This session will describe the new protocol, MS-FSRVP, designed for Windows Server 8 that allows an application server to drive the required coordination with a file server so that existing backup and recovery strategies continue to work as the application data moves from local to remote storage.

Learning Objectives

Understand the unique problems in the backup space when application data is stored on a file server
Understand the design goals for the new MS-FSRVP protocol
Get a detailed overview of the MS-FSRVP protocol
