SQL PASS Virtualization VC Presentation Wednesday September 11 at 11AM MST

, 2013-09-06

passNext Wednesday I will be delivering a session for the SQL PASS Virtualization virtual chapter entitled “SQL Server High Availability Options After Virtualization“. The session should kick off at 10am Mountain time. Please register for the session here. It will be a blast!

Abstract: We all are intimately familiar with SQL Server’s high availability options – clustering, mirroring, and more recently Availability Groups, just to name a few. But, when you virtualize your SQL Servers, some new technologies available at the VM-layer can be introduced to help maintain or improve your SLAs while simplifying your environment. In this session, we will introduce the high availability features that you can embrace to improve your system uptime. We will also discuss when your SLAs might demand a tighter downtime window than the VM-layer features can deliver, but will show how these features can complement a SQL Server-based high availability configuration to reduce the risk of extended downtime. VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V features and configuration examples will be discussed.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
