comment Single node SQL Server 2014 cluster at DR environment
@Adam - Failover Cluster is part of AlwaysOn. If you ask why we do not use AlwaysOn AG instead, it would be whole new topic and I would rather not discuss. Every HA technology has advantages and disadvantages. There are always reasons to choose one over another depending on your needs, goals, SLAs, etc.

comment Single node SQL Server 2014 cluster at DR environment
@joeqwerty - adding a third node to existing cluster will not help DR environment for many reasons. The main goal here is to have a separate copy of everything we have on production in another geographically isolated environment. Should natural disaster happen and destroy our production data center completely there will be fully functional DR environment that will become our production then. All cluster nodes work with the same SAN. Adding another node does not add any redundancy to the SAN.
