I believe you should use the Shared Cloud Disk, you can just raise a ticket and ask for the whitelist of Shared Cloud Disk. Then you will see it in your Cloud Disk console.

But you can also use RDS for MS SQL ? Built in it already configure the HA for you..

Hi Rohit,

Windows Failover cluster can be created on min 2x ECS.

1. It is not must that you should have shared cloud disk for cluster quorum. Instead you can use File share witness on 3rd instance.
2. You would need Active directory and DNS for Windows failover cluster as best practice.
3. You would need to create HAVIP from VPC console for cluster static virtual IP. You have to request supppr5 team to enablr HAVIP whitelist
4. Finally, most important the data consistency across cluster nodes? It depends on application. Let me know what application you will use?? I will give solution accordingly.
