    Shared Network Storage - QlikView Cluster

      Hi guys,

       

      we are planing to implement QV-Cluster in our infrastructure (Microsoft Server 2012 R2). As we've noticed:

       

      Qlikview supports the use of SAN (NetApp, EMC, etc) with a QV-Server provided it is mountend to a Windows Server (2003, 2008) and then shared from that Windows server.

       

      To reduce cost we worked out two possible solutions:

       

      1. Cluster Shared Volumes - Scale out Fileserver

      2. Server 2012 as a Fileserver

      Now here my questions:

      • Is it possible to use Cluster Shared Volumes - Scale out Fileserver  as a Shared Network Storage solution in a QV-Cluster environment?
        • If yes are there any best practices?
      • Is it possible to use an Windows Server 2012 R2 as a Shared Network Storage solution in a QV-Cluster environment?
      • What kind of solution do you prefer except a dedicated Storage like EMC or NetApp?

       

      Can you guys help me out?

       

      Thanks in advance
