In this guide, you’ll learn:

How to build and deploy an enhanced SQL Server clustering environment with DxEnterprise smart high availability software.

  • Create a DxEnterprise + SQL Server container image
  • Push the image to a repository
  • Deploy and configure an Azure Kubernetes Service cluster and a StatefulSet using the combined image
  • Use DxEnterprise to create and configure the AG

What is SQL Server AG in Kubernetes?

Software containers are key to digital production, and advanced DX projects require stateful containers — often thousands of them — that meet tier 1 service-level agreements for high availability and disaster recovery (HADR). DevOps, Database Architects, and others can easily create a SQL Server AG that uses the enhanced SQL Server clustering capabilities of DxEnterprise with SQL Server containers and Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) — delivering industry-leading HADR with fully automatic failover across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.
