ISCSI Setup Series Part Two: Server 2012 Essentials Configuration
We have video files!
Streaming performance has been just fine…I have extensively streamed both DVD copies and 1080i Media Center recordings converted to MP4 format with no issues to my PS3’s and Sony Blu-Ray player.
Setting up your QNAP as an ISCSI target and mapping that to work in Server Essentials 2012 is a handy way to extend your server’s storage, as well as to utilize a virtual approach to implementing Server Essentials 2012. This feature opens up new avenues for both storage and unit-to-unit backup with multiple servers, and is a feature that I intend to leverage going forward.
