Just came across a great article on deploying Hyper V R2 with NetApp with some specific guidance setting up High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions.

Our partners over at NetApp and Avanade have written an article discussing a real world deployment of hundreds of virtual machines on Hyper-V R2 and what they learned.

This article covers:

  • Information about our current virtual server environment
  • Our experiences moving to Hyper-V R2
  • Building for performance
  • Planning for live migration
  • Storage tips for cluster shared volumes (CSVs)
  • Server and storage management and virtual machine (VM) self-service portals
