Disclaimer: Currently I am employed by Microsoft, but my views and thoughts are still my own. The reason I joined Microsoft was, the work Microsoft have been doing for last couple of years in Open Source Space. Today I am a advocate for Open Source representing Microsoft.
Today SQL Server can also run inside a Docker container, and even inside a Kubernetes cluster.
With Kubernetes you can achieve High Availability and Always on Availability Groups in matter of minutes instead of days.
At the meet I talked about:
- SQL Server for Linux locally in Docker Desktop for Windows. (It is not a typo!).
- SQL Server for Linux in ACI
- SQL Server for Linux in AKS
- SQL Server Always on Availability Group in AKS
