How do I cluster 2 servers without using a single SAN or shared drive
Posted on 2013-06-25
Good day, Fairly new to Server 2008 and working on my SQL 2008 studies, however, we are a bit stuck. We currently have 2 Server 2008 R2 Enterprise servers at our datacenter, currently in DEV not live. What we need to do is have each server be HA without using a single point of failure with a single disk (SAN). Each server must have its own SAN in case of a disk failure. Additionally, we need to have our clients point to a single IP/DNS, which I assume would be a Virtual IP in either a cluster or NLB.
However, in all my research it seems that the only way to cluster is with a shared SAN. Can anyone help with avoiding a single point of failure with HA?
