Key points of the webinar:

  • Introduction into Microsoft SQL Server Clustering
  • Native “Shared nothing” HA capabilities
  • Alternative ways of clustering
  • How storage virtualization changes the SQL clustering process

SQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups were the ultimate answer for anyone looking to cluster his database workloads for around seven years. And now shared-nothing local storage clustering makes it possible to build Microsoft SQL Server cluster using standard licensing and AlwaysOn Failover Cluster Instances to achieve true database high availability.
This introduces some serious advantages over the traditional AlwaysOn AG approach:

  • No SQL server enterprise licenses needed
  • Dramatically simplified configuration
  • No need for physical SAN or NAS storage
