Failover Clusters in the Cloud (Without Availability Groups!)

Presented by Edwin Sarmiento

Until recently, high-availability (HA) failover clusters for your cloud-based SQL Server deployment meant complex and expensive Availability Groups. But new container technology makes multi-node failover clustering in the cloud—even geo-clusters across availability zones—a reality. And all at dramatically lower cost and vastly reduced complexity.

Join SQL Server MVP and MCM Edwin Sarmiento as he transforms standalone SQL Server instances into a multi-node, automated HA cluster failing over between cloud hosts. Learn how your SQL Server cloud deployment can achieve:

  • Instance-level fault protection and failover
  • Simple, in-place clustering for existing instances
  • Easy stretch clusters for availability zone protection

Containers are transforming the data center. Don’t get left behind!
