Mini-Summary: In this lesson we are going to download windows storage server 2008, windows server 2008 R2 and Sql Server 2008 R2. The Storage server that will be used to build our shared disks, the Windows Server R2 will be our nodes and domain controller operating system and finally the Sql Server R2 is our database server that we want to cluster. After we perform all downloads, we are going to install the VMware Server, our virtualization server, and build our first virtual machine that will be used to create our Domain Controller, which is a requirement to use failover cluster technology.
Methodology of example: This will create a cluster with Sql Server 2008 R2 focusing on two points: a cluster in a virtual machine without needing a rugged hardware.
