Hyper-V cluster with SAN or NAS
So far, virtualization infrastructures have been built with a SAN or NAS storage system. Hyper-V is able to work with these kinds of solution using iSCSI or Fibre Channel (FC) protocol. This section introduces the Hyper-V design with both solutions.
iSCSI architecture overview
The solution presented in the following diagram is based on a NAS or a SAN and iSCSI protocol for storage traffic.
To implement this solution, the following hardware are required:
- At least two Hyper-V nodes for high availability (three or more are recommended)
- Two NICs dedicated to iSCSI traffic
- Two NICs dedicated to management, clustering, live migration, and VM networks
- At least two Ethernet switches. The speed of the Ethernet port must be related ...
