Andy McDermid, Distributed High Availability Groups
(note we are meeting on Thursday, rather than our usual Wednesday) Presentation Description Distributed Availability Group: An Availability Group of Availability Groups... ( very meta ) We'll review the basics to build and operate a couple of "standard" SQL Availability Groups then we'll bridge them to create a Distributed Availability Group. These can work great for scaling out reads, system migrations, and implementing geo-HADR. I recently helped build a cloud-ground-hybrid Distributed Availability Group in production so I'll share a few tips and tricks from the trenches. Presenter Bio Andy's a long time MS SQL DBA in the Denver area. He likes pretty much everything about being a DBA and especially enjoys designing and implementing high availability and disaster recovery solutions. Andy has presented to our Boulder group several times in the past.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome! We are a community of professionals interested in Microsoft SQL Server database products. Monthly meetings are usually the 3rd Wednesday at 5:30pm. (On occasion they are on Tue or Thu at 5:30)

We cover all topics related to SQL Server, including T-SQL, Production DBA, SQL Development, Business Intelligence, OLAP, SSIS, SSRS, and Service Broker.

This group is for you if you want to network and meet other SQL professionals whose abilities are between beginner to well-seasoned, ask SQL-related questions to other members, learn about job opportunities, and basically give your career a boost.

No cost to attend monthly meetings!

This is NOT a group for recruiters - unless you are interested in being a sponsor. This means helping with some of the basic costs for running this group. In return you meet some great people who are passionate about their careers. Please contact me if you are interested in sponsoring in some capacity. Some possibilities: paying for appetizers/drinks at SQL Lunch events, paying for the annual SQL Holiday Networking Social, and paying for pizza at our monthly meetings. In return you are given a 2 minute spotlight to say what you want to the group, meet and chat with people before and after events, and hand out your business cards. THIS IS NOT A GROUP FOR POSTING JOB - there are plenty of over venues for that. This is a technical group with the promise of being free from job postings.
