SharePoint 2013 /SQL serverdeployment in a HA /DR environment [VMware]
Posted on 2014-11-07
Hello Experts Sharepoint and SQL teams,
I have a client who is looking to deploy SharePoint 2013 from scratch in virtual environment[VMware 5.1] and is requesting to have in one site HA for all aspects [Sharepoint server roles, SQL DBs,] and if posible consider DR scenarios.
Unfortunately, client is not considering physical server for SQL, therefore a traditional WIndows failover cluster is not an option here.
What options do I have for HA for SQL 2012 and Sharepoint 2013 in a virtual environment? VMware is our provider, WIndows 2012 R2 will be the OS deployed on all VMs
Can you please elaborate in the options for HA for SQL server 2012 and Sharepoint 2013, as well pros and cons?
