SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability
Always On means never off.
Worry less. Do more. With a simple, straightforward, and inexpensive SQL Server AlwaysOn disaster recovery solution from XTIVIA.
Take your server to the next level with AlwaysOn availability.
AlwaysOn is a set of technology features that prevent a SQL Server from losing data or functionality. Using a more secure form of data mirroring called Clustering, AlwaysOn manages to maintain a high data failover rate while using less data storage space than traditional mirroring. AlwaysOn is a two-in-one solution that reduces downtime while doubling as a disaster recovery buffer.
Many databases use mirroring to create redundancy in their data sets. This redundancy can prevent database errors from getting out of hand, but they are never 100% effective (nothing is). AlwaysOn is a set of features Microsoft implemented into the SQL Server 2012 release.
Assess your SQL Server database
XTIVIA can assist you with a SQL Server AlwaysOn implementation from end to end.
AlwaysOn Availability Groups – Availability Groups build upon database mirroring features. Availability groups improve control over when failover occurs and allow groups of databases to fail as a unit rather than at differing points. This means even catastrophic failures can be fixed at one point instead of several, meaning the system as a whole is more recoverable.
Windows Server Failover Clustering – The aforementioned Availability Groups take advantage of Windows Server Failover clustering, which solves two big problems: clustering SQL Server over sub-nets and it circumvents the bottlenecks of shared storage. It also allows for additional layers of storage protection to be added!
Ultimately, if you’re looking for a straightforward, reliable, and trustworthy disaster recovery/prevention technology, AlwaysOn is available for any SQL Server 2012 or later. XTIVIA will partner with you to fully implement a SQL Server Always On solution that meets your staff, budget, and data size needs, all with minimal downtime.
