Look for a Step-by-Step article on how to configure a DHCP across data centers and/or without shared storage in the very near future using Windows Server Failover Clustering and SteelEye DataKeeper Cluster Edition. In the meantime, check out this video that demonstrates a DHCP cluster that uses a replicated DHCP database instead of a shared disk in the cluster.

The difference between Hyper-V Live Migration and Quick Migration
With the launch of Windows Server 2008 R2 and the interest in DataKeeper replication solutions for Hyper-V, I have been pretty busy – which is a good thing! Recently, I have been speaking with some Microsoft Gold Partners who are busy installing Hyper-V at their customer locations and looking at some of the disaster recovery options, including multi-site Hyper-V clusters with SteelEye DataKeeper Cluster Edition. Many of the questions are the same each time and the demonstration is always the same. I figured it may be beneficial to produce a video that talks specifically about one of the questions – the difference between Live Migration and Quick Migration and when to use one vs. the other. This video that demonstrates Live Migration and Quick Migration while discussing some of the things to consider may be of interest to you.
