High Availability and Disaster Recovery

The High Availability & Disaster Recovery Virtual Chapter focuses on one of the most important aspects of a business - data availability. The goal of the HA&DR Virtual Chapter is to provide a PASS community for Microsoft SQL Server professionals to learn more about how to protect their data and minimize the risk to a business. Join us in our monthly webinar series to learn more about the numerous tools and techniques for SQL Server business continuity. Our webinars are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 1pm Eastern. Make sure to join this Virtual Chapter in the myPASS portal so you can stay informed of our learning opportunities.

New HA/DR Features in 2016 for Windows and SQL Server

In this session we look at options which are available to the administrator of a Microsoft SQL Server 2016 database server so that the system can provide the 99.99% or higher uptime that customers demand. These options include Failover Cluster Instances, as well as AlwaysOn Availability Groups within a single site, stretching across multiple sites, as well as stretching into the Microsoft Azure public cloud. Learn when to use each technique, how to decide which option to implement, and how to implement these solutions.
