Understanding Windows Server Cluster Quorum Options
This white paper discusses the key concepts you need to configure a failover clustering environment to protect SQL Server in the cloud.
This white paper discusses the key concepts you need to configure a failover clustering environment to protect SQL Server in the cloud. Understand the options for configuring the cluster Quorum to meet your specific needs. Learn the benefits and key takeaways for providing high availability for SQL Server in a public cloud (AWS, Azure, Google) environment.
Avoid Costly Inter-Cloud Routing Mistakes with an Intent Check
A Google search for “unexpected AWS charges” returns hundreds of thousands of results. In addition to economic consequences, inefficient traffic routing to and from your various cloud instances and other services can also lead to bandwidth and latency issues that undermine network and app performance. By using the intent check feature in the Forward Enterprise platform, you can identify and fix inter-cloud routing mistakes across all of your cloud instances.

The Public Cloud Performance Measurement Report
In these public cloud performance tests, StorPool aimed to assess the block storage offerings of several public clouds - Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Linode, and OVHcloud - and compare them against Katapult using StorPool data storage. Katapult is a virtual infrastructure as a service platform designed for extreme performance and simplicity. The solution is developed by Krystal, one of the largest UK web hosting companies.

Step-by-Step: Configuring Amazon EC2 for Business-Critical Applications
In this eBook, the author describes in great detail what is needed to prepare the EC2 infrastructure to support business-critical applications clustered with Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC).
AWS guarantees that if two or more instances are deployed in different availability zones (AZs), at least one of those instances will have external connectivity. The SLA does not guarantee that the application running inside the instance will be available. To address availability of the application, users will need to take additional steps to monitor the application and recover it should a failure occur.

In this eBook, the author describes in great detail what is needed to prepare the EC2 infrastructure to support business-critical applications clustered with Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC). In order to qualify for the 99.99 percent availability, instances must be deployed across multiple AZs. Readers will learn how to design EC2 infrastructure to support cross-AZ failover clustering.
