Stairway to AlwaysOn
AlwaysOn is a complex set of technologies that is often misunderstood. In this Stairway you will learn about the AlwaysOn technologies, how they fit into the High Availability stack, and how to make good use of them.
- Level 1 of the stairway looks at exactly what the technologies "AlwaysOn", "Failover Cluster Instance" (FCI) and "Windows Server Failover Cluster" are. We'll look at each in detail and summarize where in the High Availability stack they sit.
- In this new level of the stairway, we examine the storage knowledge you need for an AlwaysOn configuration.
- In this next level of the Stairway to AlwaysOn, we will look at the components required to implement a Windows Server Failover Cluster.
- In level 4 of the stairway to AlwaysOn we look at creating a Windows Server Failover Cluster.
- In Level 5 of this stairway, we help you understand and deploy a Failover Cluster Instance (FCI).
- In level 6 of this stairway, we will look deeper into Availability Groups and how to set them up along with a Listener.
- In Level 7 of this stairway, we look at combining Availability Groups with FCIs for both HA and DR protection.
