Is a SQL Cluster Class needed to learn clustering?I signed up for "Designing High Availability Database Solutions Using MicrosoftÂ® SQL Serverâ„¢ 2005", but the class was just cancelled. I was hoping to receive some SQL cluster training prior to implementing a clustering solution. Do you believe a class would be beneficial with understanding clustering or does BOL and other sources do a good job in explaining how to configure SQL clustering? Thanks, Dave
I am definitely not a guru or expert on sql server (esp. in clustering) but personally if you are a beginner (like me)
a class would always beneficial and will give you a jump start on clustering. You could always depend on BOL and other online resources (not to mention that sql-server-performance.com is one of the best out there) but it depends on how much time you have on hand to implement clustering since doing this on your own (without a class)
may take quite some time. Good luck.
Personally I believe to study before attending such classes, as suggested there are such resources to get an understanding on clustering fromhttp://www.sql-server-performance.com/clustering_resources.asp &http://www.sql-server-performance.com/q&a_clustering.asp links. SQL 2005 BOL has good amount of information too. Satya SKJ
