MAXIMIZE MICROSOFT MAGIC

WITH MICROSOFT POWERED BY AWS

Microsoft workloads on Amazon EC2 involve running various Microsoft applications, services, and software on virtual servers within the AWS cloud. This includes deploying Windows-based servers to host applications like Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint, Exchange Server, and .NET applications. EC2 instances provide the necessary environment for these workloads, offering features such as Windows compatibility, scalability, and customizable configurations. This allows businesses to migrate their Microsoft-based applications to the cloud, ensuring seamless performance, flexibility, and efficient management.

SQL Server On EC2

Amazon EC2 offers the capability to host a self-managed SQL Server, affording you complete authority over infrastructure and database setup. The experience of operating SQL Server on Amazon EC2 closely mirrors that of managing it on a personal server. This involves comprehensive management control over both the database and operating system, allowing the utilization of preferred tools for tasks such as OS management, database software, updates, data replication, and backup procedures.

The task of ensuring data replication and recovery across instances, whether they are situated within the same AWS Region or distributed across different regions, lies within ones responsibility.

MSSQL FCI model in multi-az acrtitecture with FSx as file share and files share witness for WSFC

Two Amazon EC2 instances running Microsoft Windows with SQL Server. These instances are installed as nodes in a WSFC cluster in an Always On FCI configuration across the Availability Zones. Each node contains an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) root volume.

An Amazon FSx file system, which the FCI nodes share. SQL Server is installed in this file system. This file system also stores all SQL database and log files, and it acts as the WSFC cluster’s file-share witness.
