Virtual SAN Hyper-V 2012 R2

Mostly a VMware shop here. Very new to Hyper-V. Looking to build out a Hyper-V test environment using two servers with local storage. I see that Hyper-V has "live storage migration" (VMware - Storage vMotion) which is great when both servers are working as they should. What i'm looking for is something along the lines of VMware's virtual SAN - VSAN for Hyper-V. They ability to leverage local storage and have virtual machine redundancy in the event of a single host failure in my two node cluster.

Any and all input appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Caleb
