High availability solution using ESXi ?
Posted on 2014-09-23
I have 2 identical spec. DELL servers.
One is currently running ESXi 5.1 Hypervisor
free edition with 2 Virtual Machines (Windows 2012 SBS, Windows 2012 Std)
The other one is empty.
I am looking to implement a solution where if S1 stops working, S2 takes over. Once S1 is operational, data changes are synced back to it from S2 then S1 takes over if S2 fails. And so on.
The process must be automatic.
Was looking at VMware High Availablity (HA) option, but its a little pricey @ $7,999 AUD.
