Microsoft SQL Server MVP Edwin Sarmiento and DH2i to Present: "Failover Clusters in the Cloud (Without Availability Groups!)"

New Container Technology Makes Multi-Node Failover Clustering In The Cloud - Even Geo-Clusters Across Availability Zones - A Reality

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DH2i Company™, recently named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in the "Cool Vendors in Servers and Virtualization, 20151" report, today announced it will join Microsoft SQL Server MVP and MCM Edwin Sarmiento to present a live webinar entitled, "Failover Clusters in the Cloud (Without Availability Groups!)."


Tuesday, September 1, 2015; 1-2 p.m. EDT (10-11 a.m. PDT)


Until recently, high-availability (HA) failover clusters for cloud-based SQL Server deployments meant complex and expensive Availability Groups. But new container technology makes multi-node failover clustering in the cloud—even geo-clusters across availability zones—a reality. And all at dramatically lower cost and vastly reduced complexity.  Join SQL Server MVP and MCM Edwin Sarmiento as he transforms standalone SQL Server instances into a multi-node, automated HA cluster failing over between cloud hosts. Learn how SQL Server cloud deployments can achieve:

Instance-level fault protection and failover

Simple, in-place clustering for existing instances

Easy stretch clusters for availability zone protection
