DataCore Provides Performance, Availability and Agility for SQL Server Installations without Breaking the Bank – Part 3
In the previous blogs (Part 1 and Part 2) we discussed the challenges faced by IT organizations to maintain service level agreements (SLAs) in order to deliver superior performance for their SQL Server environment. In this blog, we will focus on the high availability aspect of managing SQL Server.
Current High Availability Challenges
For high availability, the majority of organizations use Microsoft SQL Server Standard* with Microsoft Failover Cluster. Unfortunately, this solution addresses the server downtime, but not storage outages (figure 1.) Some solve this problem by upgrading to Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise, but that is outside the reach of most organizations as it breaks the budget requirements. So they look for alternative solutions, such as disk replication or 3rd party host replication. Both solutions offer some safeguards – but doesn’t guarantee against storage downtime or data loss. IT organizations need a comprehensive solution that can not only protect them against natural disasters or site failures, but also protect them against storage or datacenter failures.
