In my personal labs, and in our classroom labs, we’ve been using Samsung NVMe SSD Pro and Evo disks (950/960/070) for many years with good result. But when Amazon announced a dang good deal, moneywise, just before Christmas, on Crucial NVMe SSD’s (the CT1000P1SSD8 - Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD), I could not stop myself and asked my manager to order 15 of them, so we could upgrade the remaining classroom hosts from 512 GB to 1 TB. Shiny idea, right?

LEDBAT, or Windows LEDBAT as the Microsoft implementation of it is called, is yet another option to reduce the impact Windows 10, and other software distribution, will have on your network. This feature is currently available on Windows Server, version 1709 or later, and requires Windows 10 v1607 or later on the client side. Hopefully the feature will be backported to Windows Server 2016 too (it’s technically already there, but disabled, and in the need of a bug fix).
