Milton’s Lab Environment

Since the release of Windows Server 2012 R2, I decided that I should blow up my lab environment and do some re-configuration. However, before I kick in some changes, I want to ensure that my current lab environment meets the bare minimum so that I can test different scenarios for the new features in Windows Server 2012 R2.

Therefore, I drew up a simple diagram or rather the high level architecture diagram of how my devices will talk to each other.


With this, at least I can setup the following basic features.

  • Failover Clustering
  • Live Migration
  • Disaster Recovery when I have another switch in-place *

Time to hoot some more hardware so that my Hyper-V Host 02 can be put in place…

Till then…
