MS Server 2008 handles virtualization and failover clustering
Posted on 2008-10-13
Hi, I have a several part question. We acurrently have a single file server and a single exchange server, both running MS server 2003. How well does MS Server 2008 handle virtualization and then combine that with failover clustering? Would it be fesible to try and run both the file server and exchange server on a slice of a virtural server, then cluster them to a backup server? We currently have about 100 users and are looking at options as we replace our older servers. How would we have to configure the roles of exchange in a situation like this? Would microsoft virtulazation handle this or would we need to go to VM Ware. And on top of this all would it work with a SAN on the back end?
