SQL 2012 - HA and DR Lots of New Options

Speaker: Joey D'Antoni

Summary: Has your boss ever asked you why that DR mirroring server is sitting there idle? Or have the Oracle DBAs bragged about being able to take their backups of the secondary databases? In SQL Server 2012, DR technology gets much better with the introduction of AlwaysOn high availability. Attend this session and you’ll get to do some things you’ve never done before in SQL Server such as having multiple secondary copies of databases, failover multiple databases together at once, taking backups off of secondary copies, and using a failover target for mirroring. This session will review all of the above and will also demonstrate the new AlwaysOn functionality and how to configure it.

Session takeaways:

  • Discover the scope of the new DR features in SQL Server 2012
  • Learn how to implement AlwaysOn
  • Understand business use cases for the AlwaysOn technology in SQL Server 2012
