Windows 2008 failover clustering and SBB (Storage Bridge Bay) - Is it possible ?

Would it be possible to use a chassis like what Supermicro offers (http://www.supermicro.com/products/nfo/sbb.cfm) in creating a Windows 2008 cluster and achieve high availability for serving files ?

I'm hoping the answer is yes because it is in fact shared storage. I'm not sure however what Win2k8 is looking for when verifying the storage as being shared.

btw- I do not have a SBB capable server to test with. I'm considering purchasing one.

As far as Hyper-V is concerned, as long as the server thinks the storage is 'local' storage (not removable or network), then Hyper-V can use it to put VHD's on.

Also, according to an article I found online, Microsoft and Supermicro had partnered together in the past offering HA solutions with their hardware.  To be complete sure though I would just make a quick call to Supermicro and confirm it with them or look at the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility list to see if the device is on it.

you can build, beacause this is a redundant storage and hardver.
