hyper-v Over SMB RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello everyone!

    I want to move to a virtualized environment , I was taking a look at hyper-v over SMB with storage spaces and shared JBOD as a storage solution.

    I have 4 servers that I want to virtualize. DC, SQL , Traditional file server and an application server.

    And inside the hyper-v cluster I will be using some sort of guest cluster, like another dc and maybe SQL always on availability group or maybe shared VHDX for a traditional guest cluster.

    1)Can I setup clustered storage spaces on the same 2 servers that will be used as clustered SOFS? Or I need dedicated servers for storage spaces, and separate storage spaces from SOFS.

    2)Should I virtualize my DC?? Or is it better to have them on my Physical Hyper-v servers?

    3)I was taking a look at the dell VRTX , can this scenario work on the dell?? 4 physical servers ,2 SOFS clusters and 2 hyper-v clusters without storage spaces and use dell shared storage.

    PS : This topic is new for me and my information and planning may all be wrong.

    Thank you for your help.
