TruTek's Remote Services for SQL Server
Current customers of TruTek's SQL Server remote services have applications running POS and Lodging Reservation, HR/Payroll, and Financial applications. These systems have 99.999% uptime requirements.
TruTek's experience with replication and clustering will save you time and money.
Based on our high-availability experience and expertise, TruTek can implement a variety of topologies, including multi-site redundancy (live/live or active/standby); load-balancing clustering; or active/active, active/standby, or active/passive failover solutions. The choice of solution dictates whether database server failure will result in automated failover, or require manual intervention.
Regardless of the topology your business requires, TruTek can assist in assuring that unplanned events will have minimal business impact. For example, for customers with only a single database server, negating the possibility of even the simplest high-availability solution, TruTek can capture the database transaction logs. In the event of media failure, these logs can be applied to a previous backup, minimizing the loss of critical data.
For clustered solutions requiring external storage, TruTek can deploy a dedicated Fibre Channel SAN, with redundant switches and storage arrays.
For user-intensive environments, TruTek recommends a full 64-bit solution on Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron x86 platforms, running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard or Enterprise).
