Hello VMware experts,

What are the PROS and CONS of building a Windows fail-over cluster 2012 for SQL DBs in a VMWARE space? Requirements?
is virtual RDM disk the only option? what is required to fully implement? Easy to deploy and maintain? what about the number of SQL licenses required?

If we need also to replicate that DB from primary DB to DR site, should be use SQL Mirroring  or any other technology?

Please advice
