Maximizing SQL Server availability is a double-edged sword. In a perfect world, every user in every organization would have every system available 100% of the time. But as companies face the costs and logistics to make that happen, the opportunity arises for important dialogue between IT professionals and executives to determine how best to increase high availability in a cost effective way without adding technical complexity.

You’ll gain understanding, empathy, and a training ground to work together toward a solution that’s realistic and achievable.

2. The right tool for the right job

Plan accordingly, mixing and matching SQL Server’s four most popular HA (high availability) options along with their pros and cons.
