Nowadays, virtually every significant SQL Server database application needs to incorporate some form of high availability right from the outset. SQL Server 2016 High Availability Unleashed is the first comprehensive guide to delivering highly available SQL Server databases and applications. World-renowned enterprise database architect Paul Bertucci presents in-depth, all-encompassing coverage of SQL Server's full continuum of availability options, from the most extreme forms of fault tolerance down to "medium availability" options for less critical databases. Bertucci presents a proven assessment approach he has used for more than fifteen years, in defining, designing, and implementing large-scale high-availability database systems for Cisco, Intel, Symantec, Wells Fargo and many other leading enterprises. He demonstrates the best approaches to design and implementation with both the Microsoft SQL Server platform and underlying Windows operating systems, and also introduces key non-Microsoft options. He walks through traditional on-premises deployments; cloud deployments through Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, hybrid deployments encompassing both on-premise and cloud components; and Big Data applications. You'll find expert coverage of key SQL Server 2016 features including AlwaysOn, availability groups, SQL clustering, data replication, log shipping, database snapshots, and more. For each approach, he presents step-by-step deployment instructions and production-quality examples. SQL Server 2016 High Availability Unleashed is the only resource you'll need to choose the best high availability option for any database application -- and then implement it quickly and reliably.
