SMBKitchen: Just Released: Hyper-V Cluster Configuration Considerations
Posted by Reprinted Article on 25 June 2013 04:44 PM

This chapter, just released to the SMBKitchen Project’s knowledgebase, is jam packed with pearls that were the result of _months_ of trial and error plus sifting through all of the very incomplete and lacking vendor documentation.

Covered are all of the key elements required for setting up a Hyper-V Cluster on the Intel Modular Server with or without Direct Attached Storage via two SAS Controllers.

Also covered are the key elements required for setting up a cluster on a two or more node setup that utilize SAS based DAS intelligent storage. This configuration is the one we have been running with and is now our main focus as the Intel Modular Server has been retired.

This document covers a lot of different areas including node configuration, storage, networking, and more.

Cluster for highly available virtual machines, and now that we have the 2012 R2 bits, for Storage Spaces are an important part of our SMB business strategy going forward into the On-Premises and Hybrid future.

Coming soon for the SMBKitchen project will be a series of How-To videos on everything from teaming in Windows Server 2012 via PowerShell to configuring RemoteFX. There are plans to do cluster How-To videos as well.

Tie that into the author’s chats we have once a month that give subscribers front-line access to the authors and I am sure that we are providing great value for the subscription dollars! :)
