Here is what I would like to do
I have a main office with two servers. I also have a Disaster Recovery site with one server. I want to upgrade all servers to 2008 with hyper v and clutster them so that they all have the same info at all times. So that if one fails users do not know about it.
The DR site is on our WAN as well.
Is this possible? is there something I am missing. Just want to make sure before I spend 15 Grand.

One more thing, I would like to not have shared storage. I am assuming that the data will be on the primary server and replicated to the other machines.

Is this also correct

See if this helps with your question. Hyper-V is a good product. Your setup that you want to do seems like a good fit with Hyper-V.
