Is it possible to have a stretched cluster (MNS) across 2 datacenters running
SQL?

For example, a SAN in each datacenter with replication, and 1 node located
in each site.

We are trying to design our new datacenter infrastructure, and our IT
Director believes there is a way to have 1 node in each site, each accessing
a local SAN which replicates it's content and using a MNS cluster.

I have searched around but cannot find any info.  He is also suggesting we
use Win2k8, but I can't find any info on this sort of setup.  We currently
have a mix of SQL 2k5/2000.
