Microsoft Hyper-V Posts

Here you have 3 great posts about Microsoft Hyper-V from Jose Barreto's Blog:

Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Failover Clustering Options:

There are many ways to implement Windows Server Failover Clustering with Hyper-V. I could actually find five unique methods to do it. Some of them will actually not give you a fully fault-tolerant solution, but most of them actually make sense in specific scenarios (even if only for demonstrations). In any case, just trying to understand and differentiate them will probably be a good exercise.

Storage Options for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V:

Windows Server 2008’s Hyper-V has been in public beta for a while now and lots of people have been experimenting with it. One aspect that I am focusing on is storage for those virtualized environments and more specifically the options related to SAN storage.

Storing Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V files on a CIFS/SMB File Share:

I previously covered the storage options for Hyper-V and described the many choices between directly attached or SAN storage, fibre channel or iSCSI, passthrough or VHD, Virtual SCSI or Virtual IDE, etc.
However, I failed to mention in that post the option to store your VHD files in a CIFS/SMB file server share. Here's an updated diagram with all the different Storage options for Hyper-V, including the DAS, SAN and file server options.
