Course Availability: Online Instructor-Led & Classroom-Based
Course Duration: 1 Day

We are no longer bound by implementations of SQL Server on physical hardware. Instances can be deployed on virtualized servers either on premises or in the public cloud. Databases can be hosted in those instances regardless of where those instances are located – or with no instance at all: just a database hosted in the public cloud. No matter where SQL Server is hosted, it needs to be highly available.

The 1-day SQL Server Availability Solutions in a Cloudy, Virtual World class from SQLHAU® covers how to approach both local availability as well as disaster recovery in a world where you have physical, virtual, and/or public cloud-based deployments.

The topics include:

  • Understanding the difference and similarities between local availability and disaster recovery
  • Learning about availability features at both the platform layer as well as in SQL Server, including newer features such as Storage Spaces Direct and Distributed Availability Groups
  • Choosing the right feature for your availability requirements
  • Choosing the operating system – Windows Server or a Linux distribution – that makes sense for your architecture or deployment, and the pros/cons/challenges of each
  • Understanding the considerations for hybrid solutions that span on premises (physical and/or virtual) and the public cloud or multiple public clouds (eg, Azure, Amazon, and Google)
  • How hyperconverged architectures change the game for physical and virtualized deployments of SQL Server

Not only will you learn via instructor-led content as well as demos, but you’ll also get hands on experience with a lab to reinforce key concepts shown during the day.
