Hi Team,

We are exploring the high availability of the Windows HPC infra.
We went through the documentation, but its not clean on the prerequisites for HA.

Need your assistance in understanding the prerequisites for this
Like: Storage type, Application binary location etc.
Microsoft HPC Pack 2019

Common/shared storage architecture.
Block/File storage.
Application installation method.

Thank You

    @Atul Yadav You might have already gone through the below:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/high-performance-computing/hpcpack-ha-cloud?view=hpc19-ps

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/high-performance-computing/white-paper-for-built-in-high-availability-protocol-for-hpc-pack-2019?view=hpc19-ps

    For SQL database, both Azure SQL and SQL AlwaysOn are recommended. For data files, you may use failover file servers or Azure Blobs/Files. Note, some HPC Pack file shares may not be required in HA scenario.

    Hope it helps!!!
