Is SQL clustering possible with 2 SAN clusters? Can you setup a cluster over a WAN to achieve a DR solution?

clustered sql is dependent on the clustering technology, this means the underlying technology is transparent to sql, the sql installation media needs to "see" the disks during setup

I have not encountered or even tried the sort of setup you are describing, would be interesting if there is one out there

2nd question: check VCS solution if that would be of more interest to you

keeping it simple...
