Hi Experts,

we are going to build a new 3 host cluster for vsphere 5.5.
I have some questions regarding old clusters n Windows.
Now we use physical exchange cluster fileserver cluster.

With vmware I can use the feature FT.
Should I install a exchange cluster with my vm´s or is a exchange vm with FT better ?
Same question for Fileserver CLuster.

They are very different products, and VMware FT has many restrictions.

e.g. only a single processor, no snapshots are allowed.

I would recommend, staying with Microsoft Failover Clustering.
