Abstract: The purpose of this white paper is to supply storage and system architects with step-by-step configuration guidelines for the IBM XIV® Storage System in a Microsoft® Windows Server ® 2008 R2 Hyper-V™ geographically dispersed cluster environment. XIV Storage System implementation details are shared for iSCSI data replication between Microsoft’s Enterprise Engineering Center and their main Hyper-V lab. The distance between the primary and secondary sites, located on the main campus of Microsoft in Redmond, WA, is approximately one mile.
