Features

In a 24/4 world, uptime for server and database resources has become paramount. There are new features in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Processor License Edition that will help you keep downtime to a minimum.

Two-node failover clustering is one of those new features. A two-node failover cluster is comprised of setting up two servers (nodes) work as a unit so that if one server becomes unavailable, the other server can immediately transparently take over, completely eliminating any down time. This feature is a critical part of the strategy to ensure that all your SQL server databases, applications, and services are available, no matter what happens behind the scenes.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard also includes another new feature to help with system availability. It’s a technique called database mirroring. What a database mirror lets you do is to create two SQL Server instances that are exact images of each other. You can keep both databases on a single server or you can keep the mirrored database on a second server. Then, if your primary database isn’t available, traffic can be routed over to the mirrored database without any interruption.

If you have a disaster recovery strategy in place, you should definitely add database mirroring as part of it (for a lot of organizations with onsite SQL servers, their strategy includes having a hot standby with the mirrored database on it and keeping a mirrored database in the cloud in the event of an onsite disaster).

Database administration has been improve in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Processor License Edition. There are many new tools we could discuss, but we’ll highlight just a few.

One tool that will save your DBAs a lot of time is database backup compression. When data is compressed, it takes less time to copy. Therefore, the time required to backup and restore in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Processor License Edition is drastically reduced with database backup compression.

All data is encrypted by default in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Processor License Edition. You now have enhanced security tools that let you secure the keys to your server and database castle from marauders and intruders. And, now, entire databases, with all the information associated with them, can be encrypted, which adds an additional layer of security.
