GroupBy is a two-day, free online conference on October 27-28, 2020. GroupBy was started by Brent Ozar. In February 2019, GroupBy announced that it would remain a free, volunteer-run event, staffed with SQL Community volunteers.
With many events canceled or postponed around the world this year, this is an online data platform conference for the community. This may help fill the void left by the canceling of nearly all in-person data platform events.
GroupBy Americas Conference
I am honored to have been voted-in to speak at this conference! My session starts at 15:00 UTC on October 27 in the Database Administration track.
Here is my abstract:
High Availability/Disaster Recovery 101
How do you design a SQL Server 2019 infrastructure in order to meet specific Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) service levels? There are many aspects to consider, from technology choices and licensing, to policies and procedures. This session outlines and compares the various HA/DR technologies available in SQL Server 2019, showing how you can combine them to design and build a solution to help meet your HA/DR goals. This session also teaches you how to formulate policies that enable effective use of technology in your organization.
This event is free. You can listen to and watch it from the comfort and safety of your home or office. Because of this, there is no travel time or expense. If you are interested in any of the sessions, I urge you to sign up and put it on your calendar before you forget. I hope to see you there!
BTW, I am also speaking at the DataWeekender Europe conference on October 17, 2020. You can read more about that here:
