Because databases are mission-critical for organizations, high availability and service-level agreements are essential elements of OLTP database design. Customers today also demand faster response time and better optimization of hardware resource utilization.
Dell EMC Ready Bundle for SQL Server 2016 provides high availability through failover clustering. The design uses the cluster failover concept, stacking solution components as primary and secondary. RAID for storage drives, dual controllers, and multiple I/O paths provides storage high availability. Multiple FC HBAs and FC switches between the SQL Server infrastructure and the storage network build resiliency in network connectivity.
Figure 2 illustrates the design of this Ready Bundle solution.
