i´m planning my new courses and workshops for scvmm2012.
Everything is up and running - but how can i get storage-pools working?
Not everyone cann afford a hp eva or an netapp.
Is there a way to simulate a pool or smi-s compliant storages.
Till now i´ve worked with iscsi - but this won´t run now for pools.
Is server2012 a way for that?
Thanxs for some tips...

Currently, you`ll need a storage solution that supports the SMI-S protocol and also has a provider integrated with VMM. I`m not sure, but I think I have heard about a NetApp solution for testing this, but you have to be a customer or part of a test program or so.
Best tip is to check with your vendor and see if they can assist you with this directly.

Don't suppose there is a list of Storage Solutions that have the SMI-S Protocol as I've spoken to Dell and my MD32000i and MD3000i and they didn'y understand what I was talking about and told me to wait till Windows 2012 comes out which it totally off the target.
