About the Presentation

Implementing a SANLess Cluster in Under an Hour

Kendal Van Dyke demonstrates how to Implement a SANless Cluster in Under an Hour using SIOS DataKeeper™ Cluster Edition.  No shared storage, SAN, or SAN Admin required and operations were not disrupted.

Session Level: Intermediate

 

“We recommended SIOS DataKeeper software because it provided the only solution that could enable our client to move from a production environment to a fully supported Windows Server Failover Cluster – and to do so without disruption to business operations that rely on SQL Server.”

Kendal Van Dyke

Learn how UpSearch used SIOS DataKeeper™ to provide a simple, easy way to add High Availability Protection for SQL Server with an AlwaysOn Failover Cluster.
