Microsoft SQL Server Always On with HPE SimpliVity

Executive summary

The HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure solution was designed from the ground up to meet the stringent price-performance, scalability, and resiliency demands of today's data-intensive applications and highly virtualized IT environments. The HPE SimpliVity solution revolutionizes the data center, by virtualizing data and assimilating all IT infrastructure and services below the hypervisor into x86 building blocks.
This technical white paper presents three scenarios for implementing Microsoft SQL Server Availability Groups on HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure. We provide specific examples of the HPE SimpliVity configurations that support real-world highly available Microsoft SQL Server deployments in virtualized environments; deployments that meet the reliability, performance, scalability, and data protection requirements of mid-to-large enterprises. We also highlight the unique HPE SimpliVity capabilities that complement and enhance SQL Server.
