Speaker Varun Singh - CTO at ScaleArc

You'll learn about SQL Server upgrade challenges, new architectural approaches that enable the agile data tier, and case studies for eliminating app downtime with no app changes.

Advances in replication, such as AlwaysOn in SQL Server 2012/2014, combined with new architectures for an agile data tier make it possible for you to avoid planned and unplanned application downtime. One challenge is to take advantage of the new SQL Server capabilities without requiring application changes. Another challenge is how to teach an old dog new tricks – such as how to apply failover capabilities in your 2005/2008 environments.
