Two Node SQL Server Cluster: 2 Day Implementation

Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting

Building a two node SQL Server Failover Cluster

During this two day process, the expert team at DCAC will create and build a new SQL Server Failover Cluster within your existing Microsoft Azure environment.

Any supported version of Windows Server can be used, including:

  • Windows 2008 R2
  • Windows 2012
  • Windows 2012 R2
  • Windows 2016
  • Windows 2019

Any support version of Microsoft SQL Server can be used for clustering, including:

  • SQL Server 2008 R2
  • SQL Server 2012
  • SQL Server 2014
  • SQL Server 2016
  • SQL Server 2017

At the end of the engagement, the following items will have been completed.

  • Two new VMs will be created within your Azure Environment
  • Two node failover cluster will be created
  • The new Windows Servers will be patched to the current patch levels
  • The new SQL Servers will have a single instance installed and patched to the current level

Before configuring your cluster, SIOS Data Keeper Licenses need to be purchased for storage replication (we can connect you with SIOS). This installation will be completed remotely, so there are no travel costs.
