windows server 2012 R2 as file server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am looking for hardware specs to run a file server on Server 2012 R2. As far as I can see, the base specs are for Windows https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2012-R2-and-2012/dn303418%28v%3dws.11%29Server 2012 R2, but not for file server service:

    Could I expect the same specs for file server?

    thanks

  • If you do not use anything special on file server (like quota management, shadow copies etc), there is nothing simplier then file sharing. The most important factor will be always speed of the disk storage
