Availability is without a doubt the DBA’s first priority. Even performance ceases to matter if the database isn’t available. SQL Server offers several features that can each provide different levels of availability to your organization.

Each option has different costs and different levels of complexity. In this web seminar presented by expert Michael Otey you get an overview of the various SQL Server high availability technologies starting from the lowest levels of availability and working to the highest. Then you’ll see how fault tolerant systems like NEC’s FT Server can provide five 9’s of availability without the complexity and high licensing costs of some of the SQL Server high availability options.
