Microsoft Failover Cluster in a Box on SimpliVity

This is a White Paper I worked on with SimpliVity‘s Product Management to provide details on how to implement and operate a Microsoft Windows Server Failover Cluster in a Box (CIB) on a SimpliVity OmniStack system. It provides information on configuration and also details how availability is provided across different failure scenarios.

Note: Supportability of this has changed and, while it still may work, will not be officially supported by HPE

The White Paper is available here: Windows Server Failover Clustering and here: Windows Server Failover Clustering on SimpliVity and also here: Windows Server Failover Clustering on SimpliVity
