Hi all, I am new to the forums. I just setup denali in are laptop and I see it still uses MCS and Shared disks. This is not very helpful if you plan on using cloud computing. Denali's documentation says it that it introduced all this new HA features for disaster recovery. well if it relies on shared disks it is not very usful if your doing WAN based disaster recovery.
What I was hoping to find out is, does denali have the abillity to run in clustered mode and have two active nodes within this cluster? Can we have the SQL service run on two seperate nodes with the cluster at the same time?
I was also hoping to find out does denali support running in clustered mode accross a WAN? What we where hoping to achieve was have a SQL cluster with 2 active nodes, with one server at one datacenter and another server at another and have both SQL server running databases at the same time. exchange has the ability to do this. I was hoping denail did as well.
