    TechNet Evening: High Availability in SQL Server 2005 - Delivering 99.999 % uptime

    On December 5th, I will be presenting a Microsoft Technet Evening on High Availability in SQL Server.

    Session Abstract:
    SQL Server 2005 is designed to reduce both planned and unplanned downtime, provide solutions for disaster recovery, and provide greater system availability to database users through High Availability technologies. In this presentation Frederik will discuss various features (including Failover Clustering, Database Mirroring, Log Shipping, and Peer-to-Peer Replication) of SQL Server which help you meet your 99.999% uptime SLAs.

    To finish off, we will have a sneak preview on the new high availability features of the upcoming SQL Server 2008.

    Frederik Vandeputte is a Senior Consultant and trainer for Kohera, the Microsoft SQL Server/Business Intelligence Competence Center of the Cronos Group. Frederik is the Vice-President and co-founder of the Belgian SQL Server User Group (SQLUG.BE).
