    Hey All,

    Been doing a lot of research on this and it looks pretty good.
    Basically it starts to scale really well with 4 hosts and above, so you get the benefits of double redundancy etc.

    Looking at potentially setting up a private cloud enviroment running production data on this, but wanted to see if anyone knows anyone using this in production yet...

    Can find lots of good reviews and lab info and demos from Microsoft.

    From what I've seen so far, most issues are due to bad choice of hardware and cutting corners setting it up by best practices.

    Thanks for that, it was a good read.
    Kind of sums up my thoughts also.

    I'm using it in a few places on server 2016 and hanging out for server 2019 so I can set up some more storage without 100TB limits per node.
