Query on LAN based Hyper-V Replica Server 2012 R2

Last Modified: 2016-03-08
We have been asked by a customer to setup Hyper-V Replica internally on 2 servers as part of their improved Business Continuity plan.
I understand that the HV Replica scenario is more suited to DR - where the Production site may be unavailable, rather than BC and to do HV clustering we would require a centralised data storage -i.e. SAN. To keep their costs down their Internal IT have asked if we can migrate all their VM's to 1 physical server (Currently  split over 2 servers) and then setup a separate 10Gbit link directly between the 2 servers and use the second server as the HV replica - setting a low replication time to reduce data loss. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
