Reduce costs and simplify SQL Server high-availability needs with Amazon FSx

Yogi Barot

Running business-critical applications requires high availability for Microsoft SQL Server databases. The SQL Server Always On configuration can be complex and expensive to deploy and manage. Amazon FSx provides fully managed, shared file storage that automatically replicates the storage synchronously across two Availability Zones. Moreover, Amazon FSx provides high availability with automatic failure detection, failover, and failback. It fully supports the SMB Continuous Availability (CA) feature required to support SQL Server Always On FCI deployments. Join this session to learn how you can use Amazon FSx to build highly available SQL Server systems while reducing the cost and complexity of shared/replicated storage systems.
