How to use the Live Migration feature of the Hyper-V R2 without a Hardware SAN Solution?

 

 Turn a Microsoft Windows machine into iSCSI Target appliance!

 

If you dont have a proper SAN and you want to use the benefit of the new Live Migration feature of Windows 2008 Hyper-V R2 you could use StarWind. (see presentation) .

Starwind is full-featured software-only iSCSI Target for Microsoft Windows (both commercial and free versions). StarWind enables anyone to quickly install and configure an IP SAN solution.

StarWind does not require any additional hardware, it utilizes the existing Ethernet and IP network infrastructure and leverages existing storage hardware.

StarWind’s volume snapshot feature allows simple scheduled or on-demand snapshots of critical data for backup. If necessary all backed up data can be retrieved at once, or individual files can be retrieved as needed. StarWind’s unique ability to virtualize and share physical storage hardware also eliminates the need to have an expensive DLT, AIT or LTO tape or high-capacity Blu-Ray or HD-DVD burner.
