Deploying SQL Server 2017 Always On Availability Groups on Linux

Target Audience:

DBAs and Windows systems administrators who are planning to deploy SQL Server Always On on Linux


As a database administrator, you may have been managing SQL Server high availability solutions for a couple of years now. But that was on Windows. Now that SQL Server 2017 is supported to run on the Linux platform, are you ready for it?

In this session, you will leverage what you know about Windows and SQL Server so you can properly deploy SQL Server 2017 Always On Availability Groups on Linux. You will learn about Pacemaker, the Linux cluster resource manager and how it provides high availability for resources running on Linux. You will learn about the difference between Pacemaker and the Windows Server Failover Cluster and how each platform interacts with SQL Server to provide high availability to Always On Availability Group. Finally, you will see how the deployment process works from start to finish so you can build your own environment.
