Managed MSSQL Always On


Managed Microsoft SQL Always On

We are happy to handle the set up of a high availability solution (Windows cluster) for a Microsoft SQL database. This is based on the Windows Failover Cluster Framework combined with extended AlwaysOn availability groups.

A Windows cluster consists of independent servers that interact with one another, thereby ensuring availability of the Microsoft SQL databases through availability groups. The servers are networked via redundant connections and software, so that, in addition to primary database services, secondary services are also available for backup or read access partly synchronously and partly asynchronously. If a node fails, a synchronous node can seamlessly take over the workload.
