Types of Replication in SQL Server on Linux


I’ve deployed SQL Server on Windows before but never on Linux. What do I need to know prior to using ClusterControl?

As with all our database deployments: Nothing. Welcome to simplified database installations that just quite honestly take the pain away.

Do you allow SQL Server deployments on Windows?

We’re studying the possibility, but for now, it’s only for Linux.

In addition to providing statistics on SQL Server and its performance, what about the underlying systems?

Of course, on the main dashboard, you can view both the system, cluster, and per-node SQL Server host dashboard.
