On June 22, 2019, my friend Tiago Crespi and I will be speaking in Caxias do Sul – RS about how to configure infrastructure for a SQL Server Failover Cluster Instance (FCI) in Microsoft Azure. This solution uses Windows Server Direct Storage Spaces (S2D).
Guys, what an event was this?? More than 2040 people gathered at Anhembi University in São Paulo, with the aim of sharing knowledge and generating networking in more than 100 available lectures. At this event, I had the great gift of being able to lecture in one of the lectures, about a successful case that I participated with my friend and MVP Rodrigo Crespi, at Via Certa (Large Financial Company in Southern Brazil).
Do you know how to estimate the costs required to use Azure Site Recovery (ASR)??? No??? Let’s go…
I will demonstrate below an easy and easy-to-understand way.
As everyone knows, one of the disaster and recovery solutions present in Microsoft Azure is ASR. Through it, it is possible to replicate your Virtual Machines (VMs) from OnPremisses environments (Physical, VMware, Hyper-v), between MS Azure data centers, as well as orchestration of VMware and Hyper-v clusters.
Now Azure Backup for SQL Server installed on a Virtual Machine (VM) has been released for all Microsoft Azure regions through Azure Backup. Azure Backup for SQL Server in virtual machines is a simplified and modern way to back up databases in a cloud solution. It is a platform as a service, that is, without the need to deal with infrastructure and with high scalability. Through this tool, we can back up a standalone instance as well as an AllwaysOn database, with centralized management and monitoring.
Now it is possible to configure, through Azure Site Recovery, the replication of VMs that use S2D (Storage spaces direct), software-defined storage. Below is an example represented by two VMs in Azure with failover cluster using S2D:
In April we will have a great event coming up, the MVPConf Latam that will take place on April 12th and 13th at Anhembi Morumbi University – São Paulo. It will be the largest Microsoft expert event in Latin America!!! Continue reading “MVP CONF Latam 2019!! Let’s go!!!”
Yesterday (31/01/2019) I participated in the organization and was one of the speakers at the Azure DevOps Community Launch event, an event focused on Azure DevOps. My presentation was about this new concept that is increasingly gaining space in the IT area, Infrastructure as Code, using Azure DevOps.
Hellooo guys!!! On December 11th and 12th, the Biggest technology event in Latin America, Ignite, promoted by Microsoft itself, took place. There were more than 100 high-quality sessions and workshops. It was great to be able to participate with my colleagues from the AzureRS group and bring this knowledge home.
Hey guys… +1 lecture delivered… Last Thursday (08/11/18), I was present at the University of Vale do Taquari (Univates), voluntarily lecturing and disseminating knowledge about Microsoft Azure, for the group of IT managers/coordinators of Vale, which includes companies from the region of Vale do Rio Taquari and Pardo in Rio Grande do Sul. A big thank you to everyone who was present.
