I’m a bit rusted using VMware but I am familiarized with the product. In fact, I am actually using (for testing purposed) a Windows 2008R2 Cluster that runs a SQL 2012 failover instance on it.
My question is about the required virtual SAN for the Cluster setup. I am currently running freeNAS and while I was able to configure, it is using some space on my SSD USB drive and would like to eliminate.
I’ve heard that VMware provides free appliances and wonder if I can download a SAN disk that I can use for my setup. Something that I can just add as a disk on each node and maybe reconfigure my whole setup?
