Making SQL Server Highly Available

Making SQL Server Highly Available

Customers today need their SQL data to be highly available. With technologies built into the current versions of SQL Server, highly available databases are easier than ever to achieve.

Making data highly available has progressed through a series of technologies in SQL Server. So, let’s rewind for a minute while I explain how. Prior to SQL 7.0, Microsoft and Sybase worked together in a joint effort to produce a relational database which allowed database mirroring. This proved to be extremely cost-consuming on resources, and therefore when Microsoft broke away with their own version of SQL Server in 1998 they removed the ability to mirror databases.

If you’re still running SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 in your environment, you probably already know about the significant support costs. And, I would be willing to bet that your Security team is telling you that it’s a considerable risk that needs that must be addressed. The team that oversees applications is also probably telling you that these systems can’t be upgraded because they are 32-bit systems and won’t run on the newer 64-bit platforms. To top it off, the business tells you that the vendor won’t provide support on the new platforms or your host will charge a considerable fee to allow you to run the outdated versions of SQL on their servers.

When thinking about what you need to do, do you feel like you have only two options?
