Dan Stolts welcomes back Jose Barreto to the show and this time brings along Sr. Program Manager Ned Pyle from the Windows File Server team as they take a “Shakespearian” look at whether or not you should Scale Out your File Servers. Tune in as they give us a quick overview of how these technologies work as well as dive deeper into scenarios that will work for your end users and organization.

- [18:05] How about performance?
- [23:06] If scale out is not a good option — what is a good alternative and how do you configure the environment for an Information worker?
