Description: This is a premium ServerTemplate that configures a Microsoft SQL Server stand-alone database server or pair of servers in a high-availability (HA) configuration (synchronous mirroring). This template supports the following Windows/SQL Server versions across the Amazon EC2, Rackspace and CloudStack clouds:
The template applies best-practice disk configuration for system and user databases, as well as configuration for log and tempdb. Microsoft SQL Server data will be stored using dynamically created volumes (Amazon EBS or CloudStack volumes), or on separate drives created via repartition of the primary instance volume (for Rackspace). On AWS and CloudStack striped data and log volumes are supported for Windows 2008 and 2008R2 (up to 3 stripes per each volume tested). Backups can be performed using cloud-specific volume snapshots (on Amazon and CloudStack) or to remote storage (Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloud Files, supported for all clouds). The template uses Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to ensure data consistency when doing snapshot backups, and configures policy to perform scheduled backups. In addition, manual import and export to remote storage is supported on all configurations to enable migration among all supported clouds.
The template supports graceful (no data loss) and forceful (possible data loss) manual failover, with the latter to be used for disaster-recovery situations. Also included are built-in monitoring and alerts on CPU, memory, and disk. To set up your SQL Server environment, see the appropriate tutorial on the Support Portal.
