Are you talking about Virtualization?
Are you have a hypervisor in a Cluster and would like to know which Virtual environement you can setup?

Is your question given that your win2k8 system has a 1TB of local storage, what filesystems you can create on this local storage without virtualization or are you talking with virtualization.

Filesystem creation depends on how you allocate the shared space to the various systems.
The systems to which a portion of the shared space is allocated will handle the creation of the filesystem that is suitable to the system.

My questions is which file system does windows support / interact with?

If you install Tools for unix, it could interact with NFS filesystems.  It can access CIFS filesystems on Unix/Linux through Samba.
