    Datavail Accelerates AWS Adoption for Sony DADC New Media Solutions
    Sivakumar Thangavelu, Senior SQL Server DBA, Datavail Bill Timm, Solutions Architect, AWS Blaine Baker, Manager, Application Recorded: Nov 16 2017 53 mins
    Customers seeking to move their Microsoft SQL Server databases to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) environment rely on Datavail for solutions that include remote database migration, administration, support, maintenance, and management services. Among the challenges customers face when transitioning their SQL Servers to Amazon Web Services (AWS) are concerns about lack of control, understanding the risks involved, and security and compliance. Customers choose to operate SQL on EC2 because they can manage their own database support for all maintenance areas. It is also customizable, meets high performance needs for replication and discovery, and is highly available. They work with Datavail because their monitoring, measurement, and support services are always available.

    Sony DADC New Media Solutions, a large digital media company, discovered they could migrate their SQL Servers to AWS and run them using an Amazon EC2 solution allowed them to replicate their SQL Server environments in multiple AWS Availability Zones (AZ), meaning that if a node failed in one AZ, it could be replicated in another to ensure almost no downtime and improved performance.
