You can read the Microsoft marketing messages about how wonderful the HA options are in SQL Server. So what are they like in the real world? This session will discuss the theory, and see how it works in practice, related to my experience of Failover Clustering, Database Mirroring, Log Shipping and other "HA" options that exist. The session will also cover business considerations, like how expensive the solutions are, both for hardware purchase and software licensing.This session is held over from SQLBits 5 when the speaker was ill.
