Session 3 – SQL Server High Availability Solutions – A Real World Perspective

RSS

Presented by: Allan Hirt While the previous session was focused on describing the individual technologies themselves, this final session of the day will focus on building a solution that meets your needs. Based on the years of Allan’s experience, this session will focus on what works and point out what does not. The different availability options in SQL Server will be compared and contrasted so that you can see how they might or might not fit your needs as well as work together.

Looking forward to Containers

Virtualization has long been a staple when it comes to computing. In essence, virtualization is really just the use of abstraction to make things either easier to manage or more fault-tolerant. Disks, for example, have long been virtualized in the sense that a single, physical, can easily be divided up into multiple logical (or virtual) volumes (or drives) just as easily as a number of discreet physical disks can also be virtualized into a single drive (via RAID) – which can further be partitioned into volumes, LUNs, and so....More
