  • Successfully log into their virtual machine.
  • Have a full understanding of what the course intends to cover.

Module 2: AlwaysOn AND High Availability Concepts and Terminology


In this module, we will cover concepts and terminology to help you better understand the purpose of AlwaysOn and help you utilize its flexibility. We will also explain common methods used to provide high availability solutions.

  • Concepts and Terminology
  • Edition Changes from SQL 2012
  • Failover Clusters
  • Log Shipping
  • Replication
  • Database Mirroring
  • Database Snapshots

Lab 1: AlwaysOn and High Availability Concepts and Terminology

  • None

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand and utilize AlwaysOn and high availability concepts and terminology.
  • Understand edition changes from SQL 2012.
  • Understand failover clusters.
  • Understand log shipping.
  • Understand replication.
  • Understand database mirroring.

Module 3: AlwaysOn


In this module, we will discuss SQL failover cluster implementation, multi-site clustering, and explain the flexible failover policy provided with SQL Server AlwaysOn.

  • SQL Failover Cluster Implementation
  • Multi-Site Clustering
  • Flexible Failover Policy

Lab 1: AlwaysOn

  • None

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand SQL failover cluster implementation.
  • Understand multi-site clustering.
  • Understand flexible failover policy.
  • Understand and utilize AlwaysOn.

Module 4: Understanding Quorums


Quorums determine the number of failures that a cluster can sustain, and if additional failures occur, the cluster will stop running. In this module, we discuss how to configure the quorum, and explain the options available.

  • Node Majority
  • Node and Disk Majority
  • Node and File Share Majority
  • No Majority
  • Configuration

Lab 1: Understanding Quorums

  • Understand node and file share majority.
  • Understand no majority.
  • Understand configuration options.
  • Understand and utilize quorums.

Module 5: AlwaysOn Availability Groups


SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups provide us the capability to group two or more databases and perform a failover of both as a logical unit. In this module, we will explore how to configure and utilize Availability Groups.

  • Application Failover
  • Availability Group (AG)
  • Availability Replica

Lab 1: AlwaysOn Availability Groups

  • Enable AlwaysOn in SQL Server
  • Testing Failover Cluster and Adding Sample Databases
  • Create the High Availability Group
  • Add Replica and Listener

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand application failover.
  • Understand availability groups.
  • Understand availability replicas.
  • Understand and utilize AlwaysOn availability groups.

Module 6: Secondary Availability Group Actions


In AlwaysOn Availability Groups, an active secondary can be used for things like redirecting the read-only workload, off-loading the backup load, and other tasks. In this module, we discuss how an active secondary replica operates, and explore a few tasks that can be tackled using a secondary.

  • Active Secondary Replicas
  • Readable Secondary Replicas
  • Backups on Secondary Replicas

Lab 1: Secondary Availability Group Actions

  • None

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand active secondary replicas.
  • Understand readable secondary replicas.
  • Understand backups on secondary replicas.
  • Understand and utilize secondary availability group actions.
