Clustered Implementations of SQL Server

When deploying AlwaysOn failover cluster instances or Availability Groups, there is no company on the planet better qualified to ensure your success with clustered implementations of SQL Server. With one of the world’s foremost SQL Server high availability experts in house, Microsoft Cluster MVP Allan Hirt, we have the expertise to get the job done once and done right. Whether you are looking to use physical or virtual servers, the public cloud, or a hybrid solution, SQLHA can evaluate your current cluster, deploy a new one, or help fix an existing clustered implementation.

Consolidation

Looking to reduce the number of SQL Server versions that you currently support? Do you have a lot of older hardware that you would like to retire? Would you like better overall utilization of your physical or virtual servers, and at the same time lower cost and increase availability and reliability? If so, consolidation should be on your roadmap. Whether you need to optimize your current consolidation strategy or evaluate and deploy a new one including virtualization and possibly the public cloud, hire the company that has the guy who wrote the whitepaper for Microsoft. We do not have a “one size fits all” approach – everyone’s consolidation solution is different. We take your current pain and transform it into a manageable solution with the appropriate ways to monitor the environment to predict and prevent problems long after the project.

Virtualization

It is no longer a question of whether you will virtualize SQL Server deployments, but how and what should you do to virtualize them. At the same time, some systems may still remain physical servers. The experts at SQLHA can help you navigate the virtualization waters to implement the right Hyper-V or VMware solution that fits your needs. Besides new deployments, we can optimize existing virtualized implementations to ensure that you meet the best practices and standards for SQL Server running under a hypervisor.

Migrations and Upgrades

Migrations and upgrades mean different things to different people. Moving from physical servers to virtual or even the cloud? Need to upgrade versions of SQL Server and Windows Server? Is is time to move your entire infrastructure from one data center to another? Looking to change your entire storage or networking backend? SQLHA’s many years of expertise in doing all of these tasks can reduce your risk, lower your costs and time to implement, reduce your downtime during the change, and most importantly, give you the peace of mind that you will be as good as or better than you were before when everything is complete.
