I need to set up an SQL Server cluster for very low transaction volume functional testing. That requires a Windows Failover cluster and according to TechNet and Michael Otey that requires a SAN. Just to test my luck, I tried it with shared drives and the installer balks.
I'm in a VMWare environment and Virtual SAN is certainly one option but I'd rather not buy something for this early, low-volume test. Googling has not turned up any open-source SAN software but maybe my search terms aren't right. Can anyone recommend a way to support virtual failover cluster for low-volume testing?
