Has your SQL Server or Databases been taken over by a malevolent force and stopped breathing? Worry not, for we shall open the pages of The Necronomicon, SQL Server Book of the Dead, and through its Ancient scripture and verse resurrect them back to life.

In this presentation we will take a detailed look at SQL Server Disaster Recovery and investigate tricks, tips, techniques and best practices to recover from Database and Server failure with minimum downtime and zero data loss.

Whether you are running Standalone or Clustered Instances, use Availability Groups or Database Mirrors, or even use Advanced database functionality we will attempt to cover them all and learn how to bring everything back to life as quickly and easily as possible.

This session will take an in-depth look at Disaster Recovery and discuss diverse topics ranging from Backup and Restore techniques all the way up to rebuilding and recovering failed Clustered environments and much more.

The Necronomicon is a powerful book, so be warned, once you have opened these pages there is no going back!
