Hi,I have written a detailed chapter-by-chapter review of this book on www DOT i-programmer DOT info, the first and last parts of this review are given here. For my review of all chapters, search i-programmer DOT info for STIRK together with the book's title.This slim book is devoted to AlwaysOn, SQL Server’s High Availability and Disaster Recovery solution and aims to show you how to use this technology to reduce or eliminate system downtime.The back cover says the book: “ adapted from Peter Carter’s Pro SQL Server Administration...” This is something of an understatement, since the text is lifted straight from that book. Its six chapters of this book are Chapters 11, 12 and 13 of Pro SQL Server Administration. This book is also from Apress and when I reviewed it I awarded a 5-star rating concluding: I’ve reviewed more than 30 SQL Server books over the last three years, and this is the best SQL Server administration book I’ve read.The book is aimed at DBAs, and perhaps curious developers. To get the most from this book you need some existing awareness of High Availability (HA), and Disaster Recovery (DR).Below is a chapter-by-chapter exploration of the topics covered.Chapter 1 High Availability and Disaster Recovery ConceptsThe book opens with a look at the levels of availability (i.e. uptime), measured with reference to the number of nines (e.g. 5 nines is 99.999% availability). The importance of Service-Level Agreements is noted, with their specified availabilities and financial penalties. The standard HA terms Recovery Point Objective (RPO – how much data loss is acceptable) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO – how long the application can be unavailable) are examined.
