I hope someone can help\advise.
I want to protect a physical windows 2003 server machine from failure.
I have two Dell PowerEdge R710 servers with locally attached storage and I want to install VMWare ESXi\ESX on. I will then P2V the physical machine to one of the ESXi server.
If this ESXi server fails I want to be able to start the VM on the second ESXi.
My questions are:
- Can this be done without a SAN or shared storage?
- What VMWare product will I have to use so the second copy of the VM is up to date incase of failure?
- What VMWare licenses will I have to purchase?
Any help\advise is much appreciated.
