Hyper-V 2012 cluster

Hi,

i am looking at building Hyper-V 3.0 (2012) cluster and am wondering which approach to take i.e. build single 6 node cluster or multiple smaller ones ?

Cluster(s) will be hosting business critical applications.

If i build a single big cluster, would i be introducing a potential single point of failure should the quorum get corrupted ? (unsure if there are some enhancements in this arena with the Server 2012).


Thanks

multiple smaller ones is a pain to manage!

As long as you have a good SAN with redundant controllers, a redundant network for the SAN traffic & using SCVMM, everything should work fine.

Build one single large cluster, you will then have better availability, by using all your resources in one single farm.

we were going to build four, two node clusters, but we have since decided to build an eight node cluster.
