Windows Server 2016 Storage Servers

The first of the two of the most relevant changes in Windows Server 2016 compared to the previous edition, Windows Server 2012, are the addition of containers. Windows Server Container and Hyper-V containers have been introduced to the operating system environment. The second prominent change is the addition of Nano Server, which is a minimal footprint deployment option which can be installed either on a physical host or on a VM.

Just Enough Administration and Just-in-Time Administration help protect admin credentials by making sure that attackers are not able to access critical data. Even in the case where admin credentials are compromised, Credential Guard stop admin credentials from being stolen by Pass-the-Ticket and Pass-the-Hash attacks.

With Device Guard only permitted binaries are executed. Control Flow Guard protects against classes of memory corruption attacks, while Windows Defender protects against recognised weaknesses without server roles being impacted (e.g. Web Servers).

Security auditing can be optimised with Enhanced Logging for threat detection to speedily identify malicious behaviour.

With Windows Server 2016 you can virtualise without compromising security. VMs are encrypted using BitLocker, have a virtual TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and will only be able to run approved hosts in the fabric. Each and every host has to attest to its security health due to Host Guardian Service before Shielded Virtual Machines will boot or migrate.

Windows Server 2016 offers enhanced flexibility and scalability for networks and workloads. The Network Controller (and virtual switch) make sure that address space, load balancer, security policies and appliances move with the VM as it moves from one location to another (including from a virtual to a physical network).

Virtual workloads can be isolated and protected with the Shielded Virtual Machines feature. This feature encrypts virtual machines and makes sue that they will only run on hosts that have been approved via the Host Guardian Service.

In the current business landscape, cyberattacks have become a very regular occurrence. Companies of all sizes and backgrounds have become targets and victims. Security breaches are costly and the financial damages caused by these breaches is continuing to rise. These breaches also lead to serious public embarrassment for the companies and agencies that fail to protect both themselves and their customers.

Firewalls and anti-malware tools are now not enough to keep potential threats at bay. These threats are forever evolving and as stakes continue to rise, every organisation should be using more advanced ways of detecting danger and preventing attacks.

A well-structured and effective security requires a number of security layers that detect issues and allow for lightning quick response to any indication of the infrastructure becoming compromised. Window Server 2016 is placed at a very strategic layer in the infrastructure of an organisation.

Standard attacker toolkits are disrupted and vulnerable targets are isolated with help from protection at the identity, OS and virtualisation layers in Windows Server 2016.

Windows Server 2016 security features aid in slowing down the progress of attackers within the environment through protecting administrator credentials and warn administrators to malicious and dangerous activity.

This essentially means that even if an attacker was to infiltrate an organisations environment, the security of this operating system can detect the breach and slow it down or stop it in its tracks entirely.

Completely customisable from processing to storage type and capacity, to operating system - the CyberStore range is your go-to storage platform.

Used by the World's Largest Organisations

The CyberStore range of storage servers are used by the world's largest organisations from the BBC, to the CERN project, governement institutions, universities and much more.

Multi
Award-Winning

Year-after-year, the Broadberry CyberStore range of unified storage appliances has beaten the likes of Dell and HPE to be crowned "Best Storage Appliance" by PC Pro magazine.

Outstanding
Value

When compared to the likes of DELL, HPE, EMC etc, the Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade unified storage appliances is up to 60% cheaper, although using the same quality components such as Seagate drives and Kingston RAM.

Compatible with your
Favourite Software

The Bradberry CyberStore range has been built from industry-leading commodity hardware, and carefully designed to ensuure full compatibility with leading storage operating systems and database engines.


Lower Cost, Same Components

Broadberry enterprise storage appliances are on average 86% lower cost than EMC and 55% lower cost than DELL although built using the same leading-brand server components such as Intel processors and Samsung memory. HPE hard drives are rebadged Toshiba enterprise-class drives, the exact same models as found in Broadberry storage appliances.

Hard Drive Caddies Included

When you buy a Broadberry storage appliance all drive bays are supplied with caddies - so if in 6 months time you decide to expand the storage you can source it freely from the marketplace or ourselves if you wish. The only way to add hard drives to HPE servers is to buy the drives along with caddies from HPE for 200% the price of Broadberry's price.

No Ongoing Licence Costs

Broadberry storage appliances come with enterprise-grade features like IPMI included, whereas HPE charge large fees for perpetual licences for the same features.

Instant, Accurate Quotations

Our website allows you to configure your server online with accurate prices, as opposed to NetApp who require several face-to-face meetings with them before they'll give you a price.

Market Moving Away from Tier 1 Vendors

Over recent years there's been a massive move from the world's largest organisations such as Google to purchase their servers from the likes of Broadberry rather than DELL and HPE. This move is fuelled by the rise in commodity hardware.
