The Good, Bad, and Ugly: ACTIVE’s David Smith Gets Real @ Pass Summit 2012

Our own David P. Smith, Senior Director of Enterprise Architecture at ACTIVE Network, is presenting at Pass Summit 2012, the world’s largest and most intensive training for Microsoft SQL Server and BI professionals, happening this week in Seattle.

Put simply, SQL Server is used to manage and store information. ACTIVE Network’s ServiceU division was one of the first customers to go live with SQL Server 2012 and after extensive testing, has worked with the Microsoft SQL Server and Windows Server development teams for several years.

Deemed an expert and “MVP” by Microsoft on this specific technology, David will speak about, “The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Deploying AlwaysOn Availability Groups,” today at 1 p.m. PT. If you are at the show, go check it out. The complexities of getting this system into production aren’t frequently discussed, so this session will deal with real-world deployment scenarios and go into the working knowledge needed in order to implement the new high availability and disaster recovery technology in SQL Server 2012.

Earlier this week, David spoke about the technical implementation of SQL Server 2012 at ServiceU, how we used the technologies in our environment, best practices, and considerations for other customers when deciding what technologies to utilize.
