Building a Microsoft SQL Server Failover Cluster on the Interoute Virtual Data Centre

This document is an illustration of how a Microsoft Failover Cluster might be created for Microsoft SQL Server on the Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) infrastructure as a service platform.

The illustration focuses on basic procedures for accomplishing the creation of a simple two-node cluster, the aim being that these procedures can then be modified and adapted by the reader to create a cluster suitable for their own requirements.
