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.
