Digineer - PASSMN SQL Summit & April, July 2010 Meeting Sponsor

“High Availability & DR Options for SQL Server

Agenda:

  • 2:45-3:00 : Registration / hospitality / networking
  • 3:00-3:15 : Announcements etc.
  • 3:15-5:00 : Tim Plas: High Availability & DR Options for SQL Server

Presentation:

High Availability & DR Options for SQL Server (by Tim Plas, Virteva) – A comparison of SQL HA & DR options, by a practitioner who has implemented & managed all the SQL HA and DR approaches (& various combinations thereof). Tim is an operational DBA, charged with keeping SQL servers up & running & optimized, for managed-services customers. We will compare trade-offs between the various SQL HA & DR options: for complexity, usability, hardware requirements, licensing, failover speed, initial costs, ongoing support costs, staff skill requirements, etc.

Also, as you may be aware, Microsoft has announced a set of very powerful “AlwaysOn” features for the upcoming version of SQL (“Denali”), features popularly referred to as “HADRON”  (“High Availability Disaster Recovery always ON”).  We’ll provide a brief overview of those features now, and will have a full presentation on that later in the year.
