Business Continuity for Hybrid and Cloud Native SQL Server Deployments

With more and more deployments of SQL Server becoming hybrid or cloud native, how do you need to think about availability? This session will give you the foundation on how to approach availability in the new world.
Availability is one of the core tenets for any SQL Server deployment - the business needs to stay up and running. This session will cover how achieving that goal for hybrid and cloud native deployments of SQL Server is both similar to and different from purely on premises (physical or virtual) configurations. You'll also get top tips, tricks, dos, and don'ts for successfully deploying and administering Always On Availability Groups (including distributed AGs), Failover Cluster Instances, and more to be an availability hero back home.
