Expert Takes on How Availability Fails in the Cloud: SQL Server Experts Share Key Lessons Learned on Avoiding Availability Failures
The movement from the data center to the cloud is in full swing. And making sure critical SQL Server applications are up and available when hosting SQL Server in public clouds has its own set of challenges. What availability features do clouds provide – can they do the job? What high availability techniques can be borrowed from the data center and used in cloud successfully – what are the pitfalls? And finally, how do you achieve high performance and highly reliable availability – because slow and unreliable availability solutions are not very useful!
Join the panel discussion, where noted SQL Server experts share their real-world experience on making sure SQL applications reliably deliver performance and high availability when hosting in the cloud. Drawing on their experience in helping hundreds of different companies around the world, our panel will discuss the common and comical — emphasis on comical — causes of available problems. They’ll give important advice on what techniques and tools to use and the tradeoffs of various approaches. You’ll hear all about the successes and failures of availability approaches.
