Deploying a Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC) on Windows Server 2008/2012 has become a lot easier with the availability of online resources. And with more advanced features in WSFC, it has become both a high availability and disaster recovery solution for SQL Server databases. In this session, we will learn the underlying concepts and principles when designing a multi-subnet cluster to address both high availability and disaster recovery requirements. With the knowledge gained in this session, you will be able to properly design a multi-subnet WSFC stretched across multiple data centers that meet your overall recovery objectives.
