Have you heard of our Cluster-in-a-box (CIB)? Microsoft influenced the hardware manufacturers a while back to build a fully resilient piece of hardware at a more SMB friendly price. I mentioned our Hyper-V Road shows here, we are actually using a white box version of the CIB as our demonstration platform at these events.
First let me give you some of the details of this hardware, then I’ll share pictures of the actual hardware.
The unit has two servers within the frame. Here’s a description.
Here are a few pictures:
|Here is the picture of the actual server. It’s 2U is size and has the redundancy and capabilities to take care of our SMB customers.|

|Here is the Anvil shipping crate. The server is contained within and will tour the country for all of the Road shows I mentioned in my earlier blog post.|
While you won’t need to ship your server around, please check out this footprint. This is a Highly Available Windows Server cluster in a single unit. Think about what it used to take to setup High Availability. Does it look something like this?
Until next time,
