Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
This two-day instructor-led course is designed for database administrators to familiarize them with the concepts in SQL AlwaysOn and High Availability. The course utilizes SQL 2014, but explains the differences from SQL 2012.
This course is intended for SQL DBAs and IT Professionals.
This module explains how the class will be structured and introduces course materials and additional administrative information.
Lab 1: Course Overview
After completing this module, students will be able to:
In this module, we will cover concepts and terminology to help you better understand the purpose of AlwaysOn and help you utilize its flexibility. We will also explain common methods used to provide high availability solutions.
Lab 1: AlwaysOn and High Availability Concepts and Terminology
In this module, we will discuss SQL failover cluster implementation, multi-site clustering, and explain the flexible failover policy provided with SQL Server AlwaysOn.
Lab 1: AlwaysOn
Quorums determine the number of failures that a cluster can sustain, and if additional failures occur, the cluster will stop running. In this module, we discuss how to configure the quorum, and explain the options available.
Lab 1: Understanding Quorums
SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups provide us the capability to group two or more databases and perform a failover of both as a logical unit. In this module, we will explore how to configure and utilize Availability Groups.
Lab 1: AlwaysOn Availability Groups
In AlwaysOn Availability Groups, an active secondary can be used for things like redirecting the read-only workload, off-loading the backup load, and other tasks. In this module, we discuss how an active secondary replica operates, and explore a few tasks that can be tackled using a secondary.
Lab 1: Secondary Availability Group Actions
In this module, we will explain monitoring AlwaysOn Availability Groups, explore and utilize the Dashboard, and discuss troubleshooting tools.
