Over the years, Microsoft has consistently embraced and enhanced failover clusters to provide a fault tolerant platform for your mission critical applications. Now with Hyper-V, many new opportunities exist to virtualize your legacy clusters to take advantage of newer hardware and the latest operating system features. In this session, you'll learn how you can implement both Windows Hyper-V host and guest failover clusters in your environment. You'll run through a variety of storage scenarios, including SAN, shared iSCSI disks, virtual HBAs and shared VHDX (Virtual Hard Disk) files. You'll also learn best practices for configuring host and guest cluster networks, storage and other Windows Server 2012 R2 clustering features.
