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.

What Smart SQL Server DBAs Do When Troubleshooting Availability of SQL Server Workloads Running

What Smart SQL Server DBAs Do When Troubleshooting Availability of SQL Server Workloads Running on Windows Server Failover Cluster

SQL Server Failover Clustered Instances (FCI) and Availability Groups (AG) depend a lot on Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC). But when mission-critical databases go offline, bringing them back online could be a nerve-wracking experience. In this session, we will look at understanding how the underlying WSFC platform works to help us maintain availability of our databases. This is for DBAs who are responsible for administering SQL Server FCIs and AGs but are not so comfortable with figuring out why the databases are offline and what they can do about it. We'll walk thru the troubleshooting process that I follow to quickly identify and resolve SQL Server FCI and AG availability issues
