Setting up a Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Cluster

I spent some time in one of our Microsoft Technology Centers and was able to setup a Hyper-V cluster on some pretty impressive hardware.  I had access to a Domain Controller and three servers that were running Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition.  They are as follows:

3 Dell R900’s

Quad CPU (each CPU is a quad core)

Two of them had 64 GB of RAM, the third one had 128 GB of RAM.  Is that Cool or What??

Access to 1 TB of disk space on an Equalogic SAN carved up into 5 separate LUNs

I spent the whole day with one of our partners doing a deep dive into Hyper-V, clusters and High Availability.
