Sharepoint with External Storage

We have several windows servers. I want to deploy a new SharePoint server. But, I want all files to be stored not locally, but on a Windows 2012 storage server, with a large storage HDD. How do we do that? The MSSQL server is also on yet another server.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please note that by default, everything in SharePoint is stored on SQL server.  You could enable BLOB storage where files/documents will be stored on file system.  Refer to links below for more information:

Also note that your topology should not be "stretched". i.e. <1ms latency between the servers and their storage;
