That is a fairly broad question so it is tough to give an accurate answer. Here is a good start though. A Microsoft blog post on clustering in 2012 R2:

Hi again,
I have setup the Hyper-V Host Failover Cluster with a 2 drives which one is Quorum and another one is cluster disk "F"

If I want to have 5 VM's installed on this cluster , is that means I must have 5 cluster disk like E,G,H, L which each represent for single VM or can I just use single custer disk which is F to store many VM VHD.
