Rolling Upgrades, The Easy Way!

Guest Speaker: Argenis Fernandez, SurveyMonkey



In this session we will discuss how to perform upgrades while maintaining high availability of your SQL server infrastructure by leveraging rolling upgrades. We will review how to use database mirroring or AlwaysOn Availability Groups for this, along with a simpler version using Log Shipping. This is a demo-intensive session that you won't want to miss.
