Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

Welcome to the Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

The Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group (JSSUG) was founded by Brian Knight in January 2003, creating a community for database developers and administrators in the Jacksonville area. The goal of JSSUG is to share knowledge, best practices, and network. Today, it is a community focusing on development, administration, and business intelligence. Free meetings are open to the public every month. Meetings include presentations, technology announcements, local job opportunities, and quick brainstorming/guidance for users experiencing difficulty. An after event for additional networking, shop talk, and users desiring more detailed guidance for specific challenges is available following the meeting.

Featured Presentation:

Disaster Recovery and High Availability Options in SQL Server

Troy Gallant

As database professionals, we spend an inordinate amount of time configuring and maintaining SQL Server to support the business’ needs. However, Murphy's Law states, "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong." In order to minimize downtime and impact to the business, it’s vital we have high availability and disaster recovery plans in place, tested, and verified well in advance of any emergencies. Additionally, a thorough high availability plan can facilitate maintenance, upgrades, and a plethora of routine SQL processes. In this session, we’ll examine the wide variety of HA/DR options available to us as SQL Server specialists, as well as look at some of the various scenarios in which each might be used.
