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?

What about configuring the cluster, is it Active-Passive mode or Active-Active?
Do i have to configure a Quorum in the SAN?
