CACTUSS Central Monday 9/17 and North Tuesday 9/18 - Database Mirroring 101

This month's presentation is on Database Mirroring and will be presented by Paul LaGrone

Database Mirroring 101:

1) the concepts for setting up a two node mirroring environment, with and without a witness;
2) demonstrate how to configure a mirror, with witness, through the GUI and through T-SQL;
3) discuss some of the pros and cons of database mirroring versus database clustering;
4) do my best to field questions along the way. :)

Paul has been working with SQL Server since version 6.5, and other microcomputer databases since well before that. He earned MCT in 2003, and used it to teach SQL Server to new developers and administrators for the City of Fort Worth. In 2006, Paul started a SQL Server user's group in Fort Worth, which still thrives today.
Currently, he work as a DBA for Marketvine by Dell, which is a social e-commerce site incubated within Dell.
