SQL Server Database Mirroring Consultants

SQL Server High Availability Consulting

PPC Professional Services is a Microsoft Gold Partner with a premiere SQL Server consulting practice.  The Microsoft Certified Consultants in our firm can help you to optimize and tune SQL Server maximize uptime in your business.  SQL Server 2005 and 2008 provide a full range of options to minimize downtime and maintain appropriate levels of application availability.

Database mirroring, introduced in SQL Server 2005, transfers transaction log records directly from one server to another and can quickly fail over to the standby server. You can code client applications to automatically redirect their connection information, and in the event of a failover, automatically connect to the standby server and database. Fast failover with minimal data loss has traditionally involved higher hardware cost and greater software complexity. Database mirroring, however, can fail over quickly with no loss of committed data, does not require proprietary hardware, and is easy to set up and manage.

In database mirroring, an originating SQL Server instance continuously sends a database's transaction log records to a copy of the database on another standby SQL Server instance. The originating database and server have the role of principal, and the receiving database and server have the role of mirror. The principal and mirror servers must be separate instances of SQL Server.

PPC's SQL Server consultants can implement database mirroring for your business as well as suggest other high availability solutions.  Please contact our SQL Server Consulting Team today for a free demonstration.
