The Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) role is widely deployed, but has not seen significant updates in years. Windows Server 2012 R2 adds substantial features to DFSR in order to bring it in line with modern file replication scenarios in the private cloud and enterprise network. In this presentation, MS Engineering briefly re-introduces DFSR concepts and technology, then dives deep into the improved technology architecture and how your environment can benefit from it, to include best practices around virtualization, management, and performance. These include database cloning in lieu of initial sync, Windows PowerShell, file restoration from conflicts and preexisting stores, substantial performance tuning options, database recovery content merging, and huge scalability limit changes – all without making protocol changes.
