This post describes a few different Hyper-V over SMB sample configurations with increasing levels of availability. Not all configurations are recommended for production deployment, since some do not provide continuous availability. The goal of the post is to show how one can add redundancy, Storage Spaces and Failover Clustering in different ways to provide additional fault tolerance to the configuration.
1 – All Standalone
2 – All Standalone + Storage Spaces
3 – Standalone File Server, Clustered Hyper-V
4 – Clustered File Server, Standalone Hyper-V
5 – All Clustered
6 – Cluster-in-a-box
You can find additional details on these configurations in this TechNet Radio show: http://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/TechNet+Radio/TechNet-Radio-SMB-30-Deployment-Scenarios
