hyper-v cluster storage

Last Modified: 2015-04-13
Ive been reading up abouy setting up a cluster environment to host my virtual machines. Im using Windows Hyper-V Server in a core-only installation. My issue is everything i read says that the VMs have to be hosted on shared storage (such as a san or network share), however is it possible to put the VMs on a share and replicate the data to another node? My thoughts behind this is if NodeA fails the  NodeB takes over completly including the storage, kind of a mirrored setup for backup. In the end of the day i would like to store a node off-site and bring up if nodeA and nodeB fail.

Thanks in advance
