    Exclamation Unanswered: MS Clustering vs Hardware Failover Blades

    In evaluating/comparing MS Clustering vs Hardware Failover Blades, has anyone come across any disadvantages/concerns for a Hardware Failover Blades.

    Why would you install MS SQL 2000 Clustering when you can use a Hardware Failover Blade and use a SQL 2000 standard edition. e.g In an event a hardware failure occurs the admin manager brings over a standby hardware blade and reassigns it to the SAN (on which OS and SQL 2000) is installed and you are up and running.

    Would appreciate any comments and suggestions to compare these solutions.

    Hardware failover is good for keeping disaster recovery site hot via bit-by-bit HW replication. Clustering gives you UP time and availability.
