Announcing AWS Quick Start Deploymnent Templates for SIOS SQL Failover Cluster

AWS Quick Start Templates Deploy SQL High-Availability Failover Cluster in the Cloud

Many businesses are struggling to deploy a high-availability failover cluster for SQL Server and other important applications in the cloud. This is because you need shared storage to create a failover cluster. Shared storage is not available or practical in most public clouds. As a result, Many IT teams kept SQL on-premises. Their experts in IT network, storage, and server would take months to plan, order, install, and configure physical environments for HA failover clustering. Finally, they would spend spent thousands of dollars upgrading to SQL Server Enterprise edition to gain advanced clustering capabilities.

SANless Failover Clustering Enables Cost-Efficient SQL High Availability Protection in the Cloud

Today, SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition is the first HA/DR solution to combine fully automated, application-centric clustering and efficient data replication. By integrating seamlessly into Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC), it enables a WSFC to work in a cloud where shared storage is not possible. SIOS DataKeeper works by synchronizing local storage in real time using highly efficient block-level replication. In this way, creates a SANless cluster to protect your Windows applications in the cloud. You can use it to protect SQL Server Standard Edition without the need for costly upgrades to SQL Server Enterprise Edition.

Quick Start Templates Make Deploying a Failover Cluster in AWS Easy

Now companies can easily deploy a two-node high-availability failover cluster automatically using an AWS EC2 Quick Start deployment. System administrators and managers can simply purchase the SIOS Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) on AWS Marketplace. They can use the AMI to deploy a two-node SQL Server Standard Edition cluster in the AWS cloud using an AWS Quick Start template.

Quick Start templates are automated reference deployments for key workloads on AWS. Each Quick Start launches, configures and runs the AWS service required to deploy a specific workload on AWS. Importantly, the templates use AWS best practices for security and availability. As a result, Quick Starts eliminate manual steps with a single click – they are fast, low-cost, and customizable.

The SIOS AMIs on AWS Marketplace provide an easy, convenient way for customers to purchase SIOS DataKeeper software to protect business critical applications in AWS. You can use them to deploy a high availability cluster using cost efficient SQL Server Standard Edition in the cloud.

Customers can purchase SIOS DataKeeper through the AWS Marketplace at: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/seller-profile?id=3c91e2f7-fc8d-4cce-a8aa-1e37abcb4408

Yes, You Can Have a SQL Server Cluster in VMware without Raw Device Mapping

As companies look to move SQL Server to VMware environments, they soon face the challenge of how to provide high availability protection. The problem is that Windows Server Failover Clustering requires shared storage, so in VMware environments you need to use Raw Device Mapping to give VMs direct access to the SAN. RDM limits your ability to use important VMware features such as vMotion, snapshots, and Virtual Consolidated Backup.

A simple solution is to add SANLess clustering software, such as SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition, to your WSFC. It uses efficient block level replication to synchronize local storage to appear to WSFC as a shared disk without the need for RDM. You get high availability protection without sacrificing VMware features, flexibility or performance.

I discussed this easy strategy and provided a brief demonstration in a recent webinar:

Cloud Post: Epicure Selections Achieves High Availability and Disaster Recovery Protection for Critical SQL Server Applications with SIOS SANLess Clustering Software

Epicure Selections is using SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition software to easily and cost-efficiently provide HA and DR protection for its business-critical SQL Server applications without the complexity of building out a remote DR site or purchasing costly SQL Server Enterprise Edition licenses. SANLess Clustering

Epicure, Canada’s leading direct sales company, sells healthy, easy-to-prepare food products through a network of over 16,000 consultants.

Epicure relies on two websites for its critical business operations. Its public website provides product, company, and consultant enrolment information to customers and people interested in becoming a consultant. The internal website provides consultants with important product information and enables them to place orders.

The company uses two instances of SQL Server Standard Edition—one for each website running on a single server. “Our websites are vital to our business,” said Russell Born, Senior Network Infrastructure Administrator at Epicure.

As the company grew and expanded its products and services, the Epicure IT department needed to update and protect its business-critical websites from downtime. It decided to move both websites from a third-party hosted facility to its on-premises data center and Amazon Web Services. “The business is growing and we needed to ensure our website delivers an excellent user experience for our customers and consultants,” said Born.

As part of this update, Epicure wanted an efficient, cost-effective way to provide high availability and disaster protection for both websites while continuing to run them on two instances of SQL Server Standard Edition. “We didn’t want the added expense of moving to SQL Server Enterprise Edition if we could provide HA and DR with Standard Edition,” Born said.

Using SIOS SANLess clustering software, Epicure IT staff created a two-node cluster in an active-passive failover configuration that enables each SQL instance to failover independently. One cluster node is in the on-premises data center and the second node is in an instance of the AWS EC2 cloud. Epicure IT staff created the SIOS SANLess clusters and configured them using the software’s intuitive graphical user interface.

The SIOS software provides Epicure with an easy, cost-efficient way to provide HA and DR protection for its business-critical SQL Server applications without the complexity of building out a remote DR site or purchasing costly SQL Server Enterprise Edition licenses. “The SIOS software has allowed us to create a hybrid solution providing additional cost savings of running on-premises with the reliability and flexibility of running in the cloud,” said Born. “Knowing that a website outage will result in an automatic failover allows our IT Team to focus their attention on other priorities to strengthen our business.”

Storage Switzerland: Live Webinar – Flexible HA and DR for Virtual Server and Cloud Environments

Moving business critical applications, such as Microsoft SQL Server, to virtual server and cloud environments, requires high availability and a solid disaster protection plan. The question often asked — will implementing that protection eliminate the cost savings and configuration flexibility you gain in these environments? This webinar will simplify the confusing array of availability and redundancy features offered in Windows Server Failover Clustering, SQL Server, and leading cloud and virtual server software vendors. Participants will learn how to protect SQL Server and other Windows applications from downtime and disasters, all the while ensuring configuration flexibility and infrastructure efficiency.

Click to register for the live webinar "Flexible HA and DR For Virtual Server and Cloud Environments"

These capabilities are becoming increasingly critical given that fact that many organizations are leveraging virtualized server infrastructure in tandem with off-site replication to cloud data centers to lower DR infrastructure costs and to improve application resiliency. But many legacy clustering technologies are not “cloud aware”. Instead they rely on access to shared storage resources like SANs to enable application fail-over.

Those environments that don’t have shared storage may have to invest in a six figure SAN, in addition to the clustering software licenses, just to attain the high availability that their applications require. Another challenge is that cloud storage generally can’t be shared out across multiple servers. Instead, it is typically allocated out on a per virtual machine basis, which means that the cloud can’t be used as an application fail-over target with some clustering offerings.

These two architectural limitations – the requirement to use shared storage and the lack of cloud storage awareness, can severely restrict the ability of application owners to obtain affordable, high availability and DR resiliency for their most critical business systems. This webinar will discuss how businesses can implement easy to manage, application-clustering technology utilizing commodity disk with public or hybrid cloud storage to get low-cost, application high availability.

All registrants will also be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register. As is always the case with a Storage Switzerland webinar, we will leave plenty of time for questions and answers. Get your specific questions answered or just listen in to hear what your IT peers are struggling with and the solutions we recommend.

IT Briefcase Exclusive Interview with SIOS Technology: SAN-based vs. Cloud Clusters

In this interview,  Jerry Melnick, COO, SIOS Technology discusses the difference between SAN-based and Cloud data storage clusters, and the benefits and drawbacks of each approach.

SAN-based clusters have been the traditional way to protect critical applications and data. Is this still the case?
Traditional clusters based on shared storage (typically SAN) are no longer the de facto choice for providing high availability and disaster protection for business critical applications. Companies are finding new ways to combine physical, virtual, and cloud environments into new configurations to control costs and stay agile in today’s demanding marketplace. In these environments, traditional SAN-based clusters have significant drawbacks. SAN storage can be costly to buy and require specialized skills to manage. They also introduce the risks of a single point of failure. In addition, shared storage is not typically offered in public cloud environments. In these environments, SANLess clusters that provide the same level of protection without requiring shared storage are often a better option.

Can you create a cluster in the cloud?
Yes, in a Windows environment, you can use native Windows Server Failover Clustering to create a cluster in a cloud by simply adding SANLess clustering software. You can locate cluster nodes in geographically separated instances in public cloud environments for disaster protection. The software synchronizes local storage on source and target nodes in the cloud, making them appear to the WSFC as shared storage. If a failure occurs, WSFC moves the application operation to the remote node in the same way it does in a traditional shared storage cluster.

What technologies are available to reduce the financial burden of SAN administration and deliver the flexibility data centers need today?
SANLess clusters reduce the financial burden of traditional shared storage clusters in severael ways. They eliminate the significant hardware cost of SAN storage. They eliminate the labor cost of specialized SAN administration. \ SANLess clusters also support local SSD storage, enabling high performance and high availability for a fraction of the cost of a SAN-based cluster.

How can a SANLess cluster make providing disaster protection easier?
A SANLess cluster solution lets you implement disaster protection without the need for identical SAN hardware in both your primary and disaster recovery locations. You can replicate between any two environments physical, virtual, or cloud for disaster protection. For example, you can maintain a SAN or SANLess cluster at your primary data center and add a node in a public cloud for disaster recovery. This configuration not only saves the cost of SAN storage, but also the cost of building out a remote data center.

You can create SANLess clusters in a public cloud with nodes in separate geographic zones or even in two different public cloud provider environments, such as Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure for protection from local, regional, and even provider-wide outages.

Do traditional high availability clusters have an impact on application performance?
Because SAN-based clusters are typically optimized for capacity rather than performance, SANs can slow performance of highly transactional applications, such as SQL Server and Oracle databases. SAN performance can lag behind new, faster server CPUs, causing idle server time, slower application response times, and a potentially costly loss of productivity. Because SANLess environments access disk installed locally, there is no latency and no loss of performance in servers with even the fastest CPUs. As noted above, you can also use SANLess clusters with cost-efficient local high performance SSD storage.

Can you use a SANLess cluster in a virtual server environment?
Yes you can. In fact, SANLess clusters eliminate the limitations imposed when you use traditional shared storage based technology for clustering VM’s in a virtual environment. When using traditional shared storage clustering in virtual server environments, you need to use using Raw Disk Mapping (RDM) or Pass-through disks. This is a complex storage setup that limits desirable virtual machine functionality and mobility such as VMotion/Live Migration. In contrast, SANLess clustering supports all of the flexibility and agility offered in the virtual environment. It does this by allowing you to use virtual disks native to the hypervisor such as VMDK’s or VHDs thereby eliminating the need for RDM or Pass-through configurations.

What if I already have a SAN?
If you have already made the investment in SAN storage, you can continue to use it and protect your business critical applications with a SAN-based cluster. However, you may want to extend the cluster up into a cloud environment as a simple, cost-efficient way to protect your business critical applications from disasters without the need for a remote data center or disaster recovery site. Replicating from a cluster node connected to a SAN to another cluster node in the cloud can allow you to configure a multi-site WSFC failover between both environments with nodes in more than one geographic location for protection against local, regional and national disasters.

What is SIOS SAN and SANLess clustering software?
SIOS SAN and #SANLess clustering software provides the flexibility to build clusters your way to protect your choice of Windows or Linux environment and in any configuration (or combination) of physical, virtual and cloud (public, private, and hybrid) without sacrificing performance or availability. SIOS’ unique #SANLess clustering allow you to configure clusters with local storage, eliminating both the cost and the single-point-of-failure risk of traditional shared-SAN storage.
