Microsoft SQL Server is used in almost every organization worldwide and supports some of the world’s most critical applications. For business-critical applications, high-availability architectures are required to meet stringent business continuity requirements. These high-availability architectures are a combination of both hardware and software. Dell PowerStore and Dell PowerStore metro node complement the high-availability capabilities of Microsoft SQL Server to further increase availability, reduce recovery time, and avoid data loss when using two separate PowerStore or other supported arrays.
In addition to Microsoft SQL Server, Dell PowerStore metro node can be used as a fundamental storage architecture component to increase storage availability and mobility for multiple applications, storage arrays, and operating systems. This eliminates the need to implement and manage different storage availability strategies, applications, and operating systems for each environment.
