Hi, I was recently assigned the task to come up with a real-time backup/failover solution using sqlserv 2008. Sqlrepl was my first choice using either peer/peer or transactional, however for whatever reason this appears to drastically degrade the current db due to encrypted stored procedures NOT liking the new tables and constraints Sqlrepl creates. My question is... If I cannot use sql replication for a warm backup, what can I use? What is recommended? I am running on VMWare and currently backup with a simple job to the local db every 15 min or so.
Thank you, Tara! I thought about mirroring the db, I was concerned with two web servers and the UIDs..I can run a simple uid fix however our backup location is physically located somewhere else and I will not have access to the system once the failover is initiated. Sounds fun, huh?? lol I will research the Alwayson option, thank you for that lead..
