In-Person: SBS and Clustering On IMS April 20th EMUG – NAIT Campus Edmonton

On April 20th at the NAIT campus starting at 1830Hrs (6:30PM) I will be running through some key points on building a Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 based cluster on top of the Intel Modular Server.

The specific room details, time of the event, and a link for registration will be posted on our Web site as soon as they are known. A calendar item is already in place.  A follow-up post will also be done here via the blog when the specifics are known.

Some clustering topics that may be covered:

  1. Server and cluster install orders.
  2. IMS Storage cluster configuration options.
  3. IMS Network configurations for High Availability.
  4. Node storage configuration for High Availability.
  5. Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 node binding orders.
  6. Hyper-V Management OS based network configuration.
  7. Failover Cluster Management console.
    1. Clustered Shared Volumes and data management.
    2. Live Migrations.
    3. FCM cluster networking.

Depending on timing, we will be able to present a pretty good and specific focus on some aspects of what it takes to get a cluster up and running successfully.

The idea is to work with the actual products demonstrating the how and why of clustering. There may be a few PowerPoint slides here and there, but I intend to keep this session very technical in nature.
