PASS Summit HA/DR Talk

Thanks for coming to my PASS Summit session this year (or watching it) on HA/DR concepts. Come back here on Monday next week for updates based on questions asked during the session or any notes on tangents I went off on because of the talk.

I’ll put links here I reference in the presentation/Q&A after the Q&A session on 11/18/2022

A Warning – This is an Intro Level Session! If you are seeing this post before the session starts today – don’t show up if you aren’t looking to get into a high-level, conceptual conversation about HA/DR. My goal is not to design your HA/DR solution or show demos of building various approaches in AGs/FCIs/Log Shipping/etc. It’s really geared towards folks who want to achieve HA/DR or help their business achieve HA/DR and want to have a broad brush talk about all of the options, think about some thing to consider, talk about some “!OOPS!” situations and make wise choices. The goal is for you to leave asking the right questions, thinking about how to work with the business to evaluate your options, and ready to hit the ground running in planning your plans to achieve HA/DR.  If you are already good there, you should go to a more in-depth session on the technology you want to implement.

Next Steps

In the month of December, our webinar and blogging topic will be HA/DR. Sign up for the webinar and stay tuned to the blog here/sign up for our newsletter for info. The session will be recorded and shared on the blog here in December and on our YouTube channel. But the Office Hours and Q&A will only be available for webinar registrants. Registration link for webinar here:

We have several posts lined up for the month.

Mike loves mentoring clients on the right Systems or High Availability architectures because he enjoys those lightbulb moments and loves watching the right design and setup come together for a client. He started Straight Path in 2010 when he decided that after over a decade working with SQL Server in various roles, it was time to try and take his experience, passion, and knowledge to help clients of all shapes and sizes. Mike is a husband, father to four great children, and a Christian. He’s a volunteer Firefighter and EMT in his small town in New Hampshire, and when he isn’t playing with his family, solving SQL Server issues, or talking shop, it seems like he has plenty to do with his family running a small farm in NH raising Beef Cattle, Chickens, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Honeybees and who knows what other animals have been added!
