Linux Clustering for the SQL Server DBA [DBA]
DBA, IT Pro, Consultant, IT Manager/Director/Executive
With SQL Server 2017 now supporting Linux, this means that anyone who is going to use SQL Server on Linux will need a high availability and disaster recovery story. The good news is that both failover cluster instances (FCIs) and availability groups (AGs) are options just like a standard Windows Server-based deployment. However, the underlying clustering mechanism is completely different. This session will cover as well as demonstrate how to plan, implement, and administer the clustering layer of a Linux-based AG or FCI as well as teach the differences compared to deploying on a Windows Server-based architecture. If your organization plans to embrace SQL Server on Linux, this will be an essential session to attend.
Basic understanding of the two main SQL Server availability features: FCIs and AGs.
