I'm looking into setting up a virtualization server at home. I have settled on hyper-v since I want to try remotefx.
What I'm contemplating is if it's possible to run freenas as a guest. Passthrough all my datadisks to the freenas guest and use the iscsi interface to expose lun:s from the guest to the hyper-v host for storage of all the other vm:s and data?
Ie, only the freenas vm is placed on storage handled by hyper-v server, all other vms are stored on luns handled by the freenas guest os?
Is it at all possible, is it a bad idea performance wise? Please give me your thoughts.
This way I get storage redundancy and all the freenas candy without setting up a separate hardware san or get a hw raid card.
