    MJFChat: How to build a disaster-recovery survival kit for SQL Server

    Posted on by Mary Jo Foley in Microsoft Azure, and SQL Server

    You can find the transcript of the conversation, here.

    We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

    In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy technology folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

    We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

    Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Tuesday, September 3, is between me and Dave Bermingham, Technical Evangelist with SIOS Technology and a Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Most Valuable Professional (MVP). The general topic of our chat is how to build a disaster-recovery survival kit for SQL Server. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

    Some IT failures can be devastating. But failure, in and of itself, is not the actual problem. Downtime is the problem, and there are ways to prevent failures — from a single server crashing to an entire datacenter going offline — that can cause unacceptable periods of downtime. In fact, there are numerous ways available that are designed to fit different needs and budgets. The challenge, therefore, is making the optimal choices from the many available for each and every application. Those options, and specifically ones that involve the cloud, are what Bermingham will discuss during our chat. So if you have scenarios or topics you’d like to hear him cover, make sure to chime in ahead of time.

    Also: If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
