Clustering Microsoft SQL Server 2008 with Windows Server 2008
Deploying clusters has completely changed in both SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008. Whether you are a DBA responsible for the SQL Server portion, an IT admin responsible for Windows, or will have to deal in some way with clustered SQL Server 2008 implementations in your environment, this talk takes you from the very first steps of planning on through to deployment (both using command line and GUI) and administration of a SQL Server 2008 failover cluster using Windows Server 2008 as the operating system. Differences from prior versions of SQL Server and Windows are highlighted, and upgrading to SQL Server 2008 is covered. Learn what to do, what not to do, and the tips which will make your own deployments highly successful.
