What’s the only thing IT pros hate more than unplanned outages? Windows Server Failover Clustering. That’s been the unanimous opinion of the SQL Server professionals we’ve chatted with anyway…
It is really quite ironic. If WSFC is so widely despised, why does it remain the default clustering tool for FCIs and AGs?
Unfortunately for many organizations, it’s as simple as, “That’s how it’s always been.” For other companies, it’s because they put a whole lot of stake in a certain 9-letter word that starts with “M” and ends with “icrosoft.”
However, many companies are finally starting to acknowledge this as an escapable reality. They’re done putting up with a horrendous management experience that requires a multitude of disparate tools and interfaces. They are done being eviscerated by licensing costs. They’re ready for something that’s simply better.
Check out this on-demand webinar to learn about the quickest, most effective way to escape WSFC oppression in your environment. You’ll be introduced to a clustering alternative that prioritizes:
- A simplified and unified management experience for Windows and Linux
- Instance-level portability for maximum licensing efficiency
- A “Smart” self-healing availability engine for minimized downtime
