SQL Server AlwaysOn for Dummies

Welcome to Microsoft's world of the buzzword. Yes, they've done it again and created another ambiguous term that no one really understands. AlwaysOn is a powerful group of highly available technologies, and in this presentation, we will delve into their murky world and reveal the technology behind the buzz.

Focusing specifically on the two key components of SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn in Failover Clustered Instances and Availability Groups, we will investigate their pre-requisites, setup, administration, use and
drawbacks.

After this presentation you will have a good understanding of:
  • Using Windows 2008, 2012 and Server Core
  • Windows Clustering
  • Quorum
  • Failover Clustered Instances
  • Availability Groups
  • Readable Secondaries
  • Clustering Tools and PowerShell
Dummies and higher are welcome!
