High-Availability and DR Options for SQL Server
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 SQL DBA, who keeps 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, licensing, failover speed, initial costs, ongoing support costs, staff skill requirements, etc. And we’ll briefly cover some of the upcoming SQL Denali HA / DR features.
