6-11-15: Windows Clustering for the DBA (Part 1)

Topic for the June 2015 Meeting:

Windows Clustering for the DBA (Part 1)


You need to implement AlwaysOn Failover Clustering or Availability Groups, but need help with the Windows Clustering part.  This two-part session will guide you to success.  We'll talk about how to plan your network, DNS, Active Directory, and storage. 

I'll provide you with a check list you can use to plan your implementation.  We'll see how to choose the right quorum model for a robust failover configuration that ensures your database is always available.

This is part 1 of a 2-part series.  Part 2 will be held on July 16th, 2015.  Both sessions will be recorded and available on the AlaskaSQL YouTube channel.
