High Availability & 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 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.
