I'm needing to create shared storage for my SQL Server cluster. We do not want a SAN due to it's cost and complexity. Rather I want to create a storage cluster using a pair of servers with direct attached storage (RAID 10). What is the best way to get this done? Performance and disk IO matter alot, so it needs to be fast.
It would look like this:
Server #1 + 14TB [Primary node]
Server #2 + 14TB [Hot Standby node]
**In an emergency Server #2 seamlessly picks up the load
