Setting up Database Mirroring

hi,

I want to setup database mirroring as an high availability solution. but the issue is that the database that we want to mirror is on another domain. and we want to mirror the database inhouse. ofcourse, the bandwith of the network is in my mind, not sure what would be the best solution to handle this kind of situation, what else do i need to consider when i am planning a mirroring as an high availability solution.

Thanks,

You'll need to understand:

  • The transaction rates on the dB
  • The data change size
  • What amount of latency is allowed
  • What version of SQL Server you are running
  • Where will the Witness be located (if necessary)
  • What certificates you will use and their expiration
  • Are any work/scratch tables created in the dB
  • How to transfer the initial dB
  • Network encryption
  • Security at all levels, Authentication, Authorization, Network, etc.

In general you will be putting extra delay on every transaction. This is the first consideration that must be addressed by the business.

When you call it an HA solution will Clients have access to the Mirror?

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
