SQL Server DR in Azure—Building Your Second Data Centre
For many organizations having a second data centre or co-location is not a viable option, either from a financial or logistical perspective. In the past, this limited options for disaster recovery (DR). Windows Azure virtual machines and SQL Server allow you can design and build highly available hybrid solutions, which bridge your data center to the cloud. This half-day session will showcase all of SQL Server’s DR features in this hybrid model, as well as environments built only in Windows Azure. You will learn about off-site direct to Azure backups from your local SQL Server. You will gain an understanding of the networking model within Azure. You will see demos of log shipping, replication, mirroring, and Availability Groups in a hybrid model. You will walk away with a solid understanding of AlwaysOn functionality within Windows Azure VMs, the costs, benefits and limitations of building a DR solution using Azure, and how Azure based backup and recovery works.
