Win2K12R2 Storage Spaces JBOD in same box as HyperV host RRS feed

  • Question

  • The enhancement to R2 in storage spaces makes we wonder if I may use the HyperV host on the same machine with the JBOD drives. We are thinking about using the 'all in one' box as offered by IBM (PureFlex), Dell, HP, etc. with the SAN and slots for integrated blade servers. We would not have the need for more than one or two blades, so it is almost overkill, but allows some flexibility for this application.

    With that in mind, could I have a single box with say 12 drive slots, reserve two drive slots (in a RAID 1) for the Win2K12R2 HyperV host OS and then use the remaining 10 disks for the Storage Spaces JBOD for VMs?

    And then perhaps another box similarly configured and clustered with the first box?

    Best Regards, Mark
