Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Training Course | Designing High Availability Database Solutions

6 sessions available starting from $2,040.00

Subject: Microsoft Sql Server

Ages: All ages

Skill level: All difficulty levels

Course Code: 2788
Course Duration: 3 days

This three-day instructor-led (Level 300) course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design high availability database solutions using Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The course focuses on teaching experienced database administrators working in enterprise environments to design database solutions that meet the availability needs of their organisation. The course also emphasises that students should think broadly about high availability, which includes thinking about the database itself and about their entire environment, including business needs; regulatory requirements; and network, systems, and database considerations during design. Students will also learn how to document and test the high availability database solution.

Course Modules

Module 1: Selecting the Appropriate High-availability Solution
This module provides the guidelines for identifying business requirements and technical and non-technical constraints of high-availability. This module also explains the guidelines for analysing the requirements and constraints for high-availability. Finally, this module provides a brief overview of existing high-availability technologies and explains the process and guidelines for determining the appropriate high-availability technology that can be used to meet business requirements and constraints.

Module 2: Designing a Clustering Solution
This module provides the considerations and guidelines for designing a SQL Server cluster implementation. This module also provides the guidelines for designing recovery strategies and formulating the test plan for database clustering. Next, this module explains the considerations for migrating and upgrading SQL Server clusters. Finally, this module explains the process of creating an operations plan for clustering. In this module, you will also learn about the planned and unplanned events that can affect a cluster environment.

Module 3: Designing a Highly Available Database Storage Solution
This module provides the guidelines and considerations to determine the storage requirements for SQL Server databases, components, and external files that are a part of the database system. This module also explains the guidelines for designing storage solutions for these resources. In this module, you will also learn about designing restore strategies to maximise availability. Finally, this module explains the guidelines for recovering damaged and partially damaged system and user databases.

Module 4: Designing a Log Shipping Solution
In this module, you will learn about the guidelines and considerations for designing a log shipping solution. This module provides the guidelines for determining log shipping server roles and topology. This module also explains the guidelines for upgrading log shipping. Finally, this module explains the process of designing an operations plan for log shipping. In this module, you will also learn about the planned and unplanned events that can affect a log shipping environment.

Module 5: Designing a Database Mirroring Solution
In this module, you will learn about the guidelines and considerations for designing a database mirroring solution. This module provides the guidelines for determining the database roles and topology for mirroring. This module also explains the guidelines for migrating from an existing high-availability technology in SQL Server 2000 to database mirroring in SQL Server 2005. Finally, this module explains the process of designing an operations plan for database mirroring. In this module, you will also learn about the planned and unplanned events that can affect a mirroring environment.

Module 6: Designing a Highly Available Solution Based on Replication
In this module, you will learn about the guidelines and considerations for designing a highly-available solution based on replication. This module provides the guidelines for determining replication server roles and topology. This module also explains the guidelines for upgrading replication. Finally, this module explains the process of designing an operations plan for replication. In this module, you will also learn about the planned and unplanned events that can affect a replication environment.

Module 7: Combining High-availability Technologies
This module provides guidelines for designing high-availability solutions by combining existing high-availability technologies. This module enables you to evaluate the weaknesses in each high-availability technology. In this module, you will determine technologies that complement each other to minimize these weaknesses.

Module 8: Documenting and Testing a High-availability Strategy
This module provides guidelines for documenting and testing high-availability solutions. This module explains the structure of a high-availability solution document and also explains the need for documenting the solution. In this module, you will also discuss the process of creating a test plan for high-availability solutions.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for current professional database administrators who have three or more years of on-the-job experience administering SQL Server database solutions in an enterprise environment.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must:

• Have a basic understanding of network architecture. For example, what can fail in a network, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), differing performance characteristics of network components, etc.
• Understand the tradeoffs among the different redundant storage types. For example, what RAID levels mean, how it differs from a SAN, etc.
• Understand how replication works and how replication is implemented.
• Be familiar with reading user requirements and business-need documents. For example, development project vision or mission statements or business analysis reports.
• Have monitoring and troubleshooting skills.
• Have knowledge of the operating system and platform. Specifically, must understand how hardware can fail, how the operating system integrates with the database, what the platform or operating system can do, and how the interaction between the operating system and the database works.
• Have knowledge of application architecture. Specifically, must understand how applications identify servers to connect to, how applications can be designed in three layers, what applications can do, the interactions between applications and the database, interactions between the database and the platform or operating system.
• Know how to use:
• A monitoring tool
• Microsoft Visio (to create infrastructure diagrams)
• Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies.
• Have a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 credential - or equivalent experience.

In addition, it is recommended, but not required, that students have completed:

• Course 2778, Writing Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Transact-SQL
• Course 2779, Implementing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Database
• Course 2780, Maintaining a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Database
