Dave Northey, from Microsoft Ireland, has recorded a cracking little video where he shows the ease with which he can create a highly available file server, built on the Failover Clustering technology in Windows Server 2008 (Enterprise and Datacenter).

In the video, Dave uses six virtual machines all running on his laptop (domain controller, iSCSI SAN, three Server Core Cluster Nodes and a 2008 Member Server).  He shows and explains the 'Validate' process, along with the new quorum configurations.  The idea of Failover Clustering in 2008 is simplicity, and Dave brings this across perfectly.
