SQL Server 2012 Disaster Recovery
You never know when disaster will strike. But if it does, servers and even entire data centers can become unavailable. And if your database is unavailable, you can’t serve up any data, which means all your applications are down, too. The new SQL Server 2012 Disaster Recovery Solution combines the failover and disaster recovery features of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2012 Enterprise and GoGrid’s fault-tolerant infrastructure services. This solution works best for companies running production systems that require full recoverability or MSPs that want to offer a highly available SQL Server 2012 solution to their customers.
Recover your data after a disaster with SQL Server 2012 Enterprise and GoGrid’s Cloud Link.
- Data sync across clusters and data centers
Using Cloud Link, you can connect your data centers via a dedicated, private network connection and sync data over your private network. This approach lets you avoid the public Internet or incurring outbound data transfer charges between data centers.
- Database reliability
SQL Server 2012 Enterprise is a leading relational database product. It is designed for AlwaysOn failover clustering and multi-site clustering across subnets. This version also offers AlwaysOn availability groups. Database snapshots safeguard against error.
- Integrate with other GoGrid services
You can access and manage your infrastructure through the Internet using GoGrid’s web-based management console or our iPhone app. You can also access all your infrastructure in multiple data centers through GoGrid’s API, allowing for complete programmatic control. All GoGrid services like Dynamic Load Balancers and Firewalls are available in the same network.
- Free 24/7 Support
GoGrid Support is free and easy to use. By selecting GoGrid as your cloud infrastructure provider, you’ll have unlimited access to our 24x7 Technical Support experts. GoGrid Technical Support is available via chat, phone, and case submission to all customers.
Projects don’t exist in a vacuum, which means SQL Server is usually only one part of a larger project. Using our solution gives you the flexibility to meet specific project requirements while leveraging cloud elasticity to meet increased demand spikes. Here’s an example of what a SQL Server 2012 Disaster Recovery solution could look like. This example is designed to take advantage of SQL Server 2012’s AlwaysOn capabilities and multi-site failover. You’ll likely need additional Cloud Servers for the applications that access the database. Of course your solution may be different based on the needs of your business or application. Remember: If you’re not sure about how you need to set up your solution, our team of cloud experts is always happy to help.
