One of the issues with Hyper-V R2 that I come across is that in order to create VMs that are clustered we have to use iSCSI, you may say, “well that’s not a problem”, but to some people it is, they  have invested time, effort and money to create their shared storage.

Well, that has now been address with Windows 2012 Hyper-V

The product now supports Virtual Fibre Channel, this enables VMs to now use a Fibre Channel HBA, which in turn allows the VM to use Fibre Channel devices.

All we have to do is ensure that our Hyper-V host has a supported and compatible Fibre Channel HBA
