Hyper-V Replica Broker

    As we already know Hyper-V replication we can use as our DR software. Using this valuable free feature of Hyper-V we can replicate virtual machine/s from one Hyper-V host to different Hyper-V host/s.

But in a cluster environment, we have to think about virtual machine placement.
