I will be working at the Microsoft booth in the Storage Networking World next week in Orlando, Florida. I will deliver one of the demos there and my demo includes the following technologies:
We'll have two servers running Windows Server 2008 Core, both with the Hyper-V role installed and connected to an iSCSI Software Target, running WUDSS 2003. These two Windows Server 2008 Core servers will be configured as a Failover Cluster using the iSCSI SAN as shared storage. We'll use a third Windows Server 2008 with a Full install to remotely manage the Failover Cluster and Hyper-V. Here's a little diagram of what it looks like:
The demo steps will include:
Please note that the configuration above is not fully fault tolerant. For instance, we'll have only one Ethernet switch. It is a demo, you know :-) . If you want to see more examples of configurations, including some that are fully fault tolerant, check my other post at: http://blogs.technet.com/josebda/archive/2007/12/07/high-availability-scenarios.aspx
Also note that is only one of the many ways to expose storage to a Hyper-V server and its child partitions. To see additional options, check my other two posts at http://blogs.technet.com/josebda/archive/2008/02/14/storage-options-for-windows-server-2008-s-hyper-v.aspx and http://blogs.technet.com/josebda/archive/2008/03/06/more-on-storage-options-for-windows-server-2008-s-hyper-v.aspx.
If you're attending SNW Spring 2008, be sure to come by the booth, check the demos and ask some questions. For details about the event, check http://www.snwusa.com/.
Привет, это Артём. Вчера я получил собственную учётную запись на сайте — и поэтому мне больше не придётся отдельно представляться в начале каждой статьи (автор указан внизу заметки). Продолжаем разговор о том, как своими руками собрать стенд или тестовую
