Achieve SQL Server 2008 High Availability and Disaster Recovery - technical case study

Achieving maximum availability and near immediate recovery from a disaster is essential for maintaining our revenue stream. Service Management principles must be worked hard to eliminate all single points of failure in architecture, and developed procedures for patching servers, upgrading software, and implementing application changes that preserve high availability. Based on these efforts, you can achieve 99.99 percent uptime, including both planned and unplanned downtime.

This session covers the decisions and procedures that are employed to maintain maximum availability with minimal downtime. This information will be of interest to senior IT managers, project leads, architects, and database administrators (DBAs). All the content is presented from my own experience and industry best practices, it will sum up a great deal of procedures to achieve high availability and disaster recovery.
