Will Explain How to Create Hybrid AG Clusters Across SQL Server Containers, Achieve Near-Zero RTO, and Avoid SQL Server HA/DR Configuration and Networking Challenges

FORT COLLINS, Co. – July 27, 2021

DH2i®, the leading provider of multi-platform Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) and Smart Availability™ software, today announced Microsoft’s Amit Khandelwal will join with DH2i’s Connor Cox to present a live webinar titled, “How to Achieve Peak Availability for Containerized SQL Server in Kubernetes.”


August 4, 2021, 10:00 am -10:30 am Pacific Time / 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm Eastern Time

Why Attend:

Despite the benefits containers bring to IT operations, implementing high availability (HA) for containerized stateful workloads—such as Microsoft SQL Server—remains an obstacle.

Kubernetes (K8s) is well known for its container orchestration capabilities; however, the native HA of K8s alone is insufficient for SQL Server workloads. The standard technology many SQL Server pros rely on for HA, availability groups (AGs), has not been supported in containers—until now.

In this webinar, Microsoft’s Amit Khandelwal and DH2i’s Connor Cox will show you how to achieve robust HA for containerized SQL Server. Attendees will learn how to use DH2i’s DxEnterprise for AGs in Containers to:

  • Create hybrid AG clusters across networks and platforms, including Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
  • Protect against node, container and app failures with near-zero RTO AG failover
  • Avoid SQL Server HA/DR configuration and networking challenges
