So I have the hardware I require for a nice SAN, including a 10Gbps switch and NICs. The OS I installed on the servers are Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.
I know I can create an iSCSI target on the system, and access it from something like Xen Server, VMware, etc...
What I am confused about is setting two of these systems up such that if one fails, the other one automatically takes over. Ideally, they would be mirrored, like a Raid 1 for drives, so there would be no loss of data.
What do you guys recommend?
Yes, I am also willing to switch OSes, although I am keeping with MS right now as this is what the client wants.
