    I am looking for an article that assumes I know nothing about windows 2008
    clustering.

    I need to get from it exactly what software is required to allow clustering
    SQL server 2005 under windows 2008, what network topologies are required,
    and at least a brief explanation of how it is set up so that I can figure
    out if we should attempt it in house.

    Can anyone point me to this?

    Thanks.

    Google has THOUSANDS of hits, but all seem to start by being built on other
    articles that are built on articles ad infinitum.

  3. Hi Roger,

    To enable SQL clustering you basically need an enterprise or datacenter
    version of Windows Server for each instance of SQL that you are running. With
    Hyper-V Technology now alive and well, you may want to consider going with a
    SQL appliance (using an embedded version of Windows Server and SQL) that runs
    both instances of SQL server on the same powerful piece of hardware. You'll
    get better pricing on the Windows licenses going embedded. I'm a Microsoft
    embedded OEM and I can design a solution for you if you're interested in an
    embedded OS solution.
