High Availability solutions have been around for nearly as long as SQL Server and with “Maintenance Windows” becoming an increasingly rare luxury, businesses are relying more and more on their Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence reporting platforms being available 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.
In this pre-conference session we shall explain how to design, plan, implement and maintain an end-to-end Highly Available Business Intelligence and analytic platform laying not only the conceptual foundations for your learning, but providing the practical technical hands on know-how for Business Intelligence professionals, Database (and Windows) administrators, and Technical Architects.
This training day will provide a detailed background and understanding of SQL, SharePoint and BI HADR ranging from simple solutions up to complex integrated systems.
We will take a look at the Business intelligence platform (including SSAS, SSRS, SSIS, SharePoint and Office) and look at how you can implement these into HADR architectures with the use of SQL High Availability Solutions, Virtualization Platforms, Scale-Out strategies and Cloud based solutions.
By the end of this pre-conference session, you should be comfortable designing, deploying, optimizing and managing your Business Intelligence and SharePoint environments onto Highly Available environments, covering a diverse range of subjects from the humble database all the way up to hybrid virtualized deployments.
