This session will showcase how you can use all of SQL Server’s DR features in this model, as well as how to build an environment solely in Windows Azure. You will learn to back up your databases to Azure Blob storage to protect backups. You will gain an understanding of the networking model within Azure. You will see the implementation of log shipping, replication, mirroring, and AlwaysOn Availability Groups in a hybrid model.
