No discussion about Hyper-V would be complete without a discussion on how to make it highly available. The biggest win for most organizations is the ability to reduce downtime when the underlying physical hardware fails.
In this chapter, you find out how to make your Hyper-V deployments highly available. These technologies can be used to prevent or minimize disruption due to hardware failure, or maintenance on the underlying hosts.
Hyper-V Replica is a great solution for disaster recovery situations. It allows you to replicate a live virtual machine (VM) to an offline Hyper-V Replica. In the event of an issue that takes the active host down, the VM can be powered on at the replica server.
Hyper-V Replicas may be in the same physical datacenter, or they may be located in geographically distant datacenters.
To use Hyper-V Replica, you must first set up the Hyper-V hosts. Then you can configure ...
