I'm more xen & vmware experienced, that's why I do not have any deep knowledge of Hyper-V.. Please, help me with these questions:
I would like to have cluster made of 2 nodes (mostly Linux is virtualized).
1) What do you recommend, to have 2 Hyper-V servers and management consoles, or 2 Win2008 with Hyper-V ? What are the benefits of having win2008 with this feature?
2) How it is called that management console ? Could you please tell me the approximate pricing ?
3) Does the free edition of hyper-v server support some kind of high availability ? (one physical host goes down, and all running VMs are transfered on another host)
