Architecting Availability Groups
Speaker: Derik Hammer
Summary: You are a DBA familiar with some basic Windows clustering and database mirroring concepts, and now you are considering AlwaysOn Availability Groups. This session will cover the pros and cons of four typical configurations of AlwaysOn Availability Groups; stand-alone instances, fail-over cluster instances, multi-subnet, and a hybrid approach that I call disaster-recovery-on-the-cheap. It will also include their exclusive features such as read-only routing and backup off-loading. In addition, you'll learn how to use the Availability Group Listener correctly and why you should be using Windows Server 2012 R2 or above, along with some of my own personal lessons learned.
About Derik: I am currently working as a Production / Traditional DBA with Ascension Information Services. Server configuration, architecture, disaster recovery, high-availability, performance tuning, and maintenance automation form the bulk of my responsibilities. Previous positions have landed me as Head of Database Operations followed by Data Architect at Liberty Tax Service. I also spend as much time as I can spare attending SQL Server community functions. Currently chapter leader for FairfieldPASS.
