What exactly do you want to achieve?

The best option is to create a Server Cluster with shared storage (SAN or NAS preferably SAN) but it depends what you want to achieve and what your budget is?

Hi Demazter,

We already have the SAN & Servers; i want to achieve a file service (Folders Sharing) in the company.
Then you need to install the File Server role.

See here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc780253(v=ws.10).aspx
What about configuring the cluster, is it Active-Passive mode or Active-Active?
Do i have to configure a Quorum in the SAN?

the link which you sent for windows 2003, is there any link for windows 2008 R2
