Hi Experts,

I need to prepare an assestment and justification of why is always better to setup a Microsoft Windows 2008 cluster on a physical server instead of VMware or any other virtualization software.

Can anyone please provide me with a MS link that explain in details the best practices of deploying MS cluster in a phyisical box?

sorry to tell you this but....virtualization is here and now.

i run a virtual file cluster and a virtual sql cluster in a hyper-v environment on a SAN

you can move the virtual machines around in a virtual environment, spin up new virtual machines to add to the cluster

you can run other servers on the physical hosts too - reducing hardware and costs for the various platforms you need.
