Microsoft upgraded to SQL Server 2014 in
4 months vs. 9 months with no app changes
In preparation for Black Friday 2013, the operations team supporting Dell.com sought a solution that could handle the onslaught of consumer web traffic while maintaining high availability and performance.
A few days ago, we sustained a sudden hardware failure...by the time the response team had rushed to their workstations, the ScaleArc/SQL cluster had already handled the situation. The recovery was fully automatic - there was no outage, no dropped sessions, and no tangible customer impact. Impressive.
