SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups

Kalyan Yella, Sr. Dedicated Support Engineer Microsoft

This is a two part series on SQL Server AlwaysOn features. In the first session, we are going to talk about the new AlwaysOn Availability Groups feature introduced in SQL Server 2012 and how you can build a highly available solution using this exciting feature. We are going to learn how to deploy an AlwaysOn Solution, how to utilize the secondary hardware for better ROI including how this solution simplifies deployment and management of high availability in your SQL Server environment. In the second session, we are going to compare and contrast SQL Server FCI (Failover Clustered Instance) and AG (Availability Group) features and how they play together including some of the best practices when you combine these two solutions together. In addition, we are going to make a deep dive into the AlwaysOn failover mechanism and some of the troubleshooting scenarios. I will also include a bonus topic towards the end of this session (surprise!!)
