VMWare Fault Tolerance without a SAN
Posted on 2014-01-16
I've been told that it is possible to setup a vmware cluster to run virtual machines with Fault Tolerance enabled without the need of an external shared storage.
A storage would be created using disk units from both servers in the cluster and shared between them, so should one of them fail, the storage would still be available because it is mirrored in both machines.
In other words, the required shared storage is created using the physical resources of the very same physical computers hosting the FT-enabled virtual machines.
Is this true at all?
