My friends at MSSQLTips.com asked me to do a webcast on SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Availability Groups. You’ve probably noticed that I have not been writing anything about SQL Server 2012 (formerly “Denali”) from both the articles that I’ve been writing and the previous blog posts as compared to when SQL Server 2008 was being released. That’s just my preference specifically because of all the stuff that I can’t talk about back then. Well, now that it is officially out in the public with the new name, I guess I no longer have to worry about mentioning anything that isn’t publicly available.
Being a high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR) guy, AlwaysOn is one of the features that I like about SQL Server 2012. This provides organizations with more options to consider when implementing an HA/DR solution. Two things that are being introduced here are AlwaysOn Availability Groups and AlwaysOn Failover Clustering.
On the 30th of November 2011 (3PM EDT), join me and the guys from Fusion-IO and MSSQLTips.com as we explore this new feature in SQL Server 2012 called AlwaysOn Availability Groups. To register for this webcast, simply click on this link. If you have questions about AlwaysOn Availability Groups even before the webcast, you can post them here so we can discuss it further. I will try my very best to make sure that your question be mentioned during the webcast
