High Availability and Disaster Recovery in the Cloud (Sponsored by IDERA)

Wednesday, Aug 30 at 11:00AM Central, Noon Eastern

You’re already running your own SQL Server, and you’re not interested in the cloud. However, you need a reliable Plan B, and you can’t afford an offsite data center. You’re curious about how the cloud can help, but you don’t want marketing spam.

Brent Ozar will explain the difference between Platform-as-a-Service (Azure SQL DB and Amazon RDS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Amazon EC2 and Azure VMs). He’ll show you how they can be used for high availability and disaster recovery, talk about the kind of uptime you can expect, and give you a simple decision chart to determine which solution is right for you. Register now.
