Optimizing Storage Pools

When used for longer periods of time, individual hard disks in the storage pool can be exposed to more stress than others. Additionally, new physical hard disks that are integrated into the system need to be integrated appropriately. Microsoft has new cmdlets that let you optimize storage pools to distribute the data more efficiently,

Optimize-StoragePool <Pool-Name>

and you can query the current status of the action:

Get-StorageJob | ? Name -eq Optimize


Thanks to S2D, you can combine the volumes of all cluster nodes into a single data store and work with three different storage tier types. Windows Server 2016 distinguishes between NVMe SSDs, SSDs, and HDDs. With the use of these three media, access to data carriers can be accelerated by many times.
