Rethinking Your SQL Server WAN and Cloud Strategy
Fast, cheap and reliable? Not usually descriptions used for your WAN, especially when SQL Server is in the picture. The truth is, SQL Server’s poor use of TCP/IP creates latency and congestion issues on the LAN and WAN. On the WAN, this translates to users who are limited in what they can do.
Contrary to popular belief, the idea of having all data available across the globe in real-time, even to-and-from the most remote office does not have to be an expensive, unachievable nightmare. There is an alternative to cobbling together combinations of nightly jobs and log shipping to move data in a compromise of time and money. Instead of the compromise, the dream of instantly available data can become reality by installing a unique compression solution that turns SQL Server’s inefficient protocol into an efficient one capable of real-time data movement using SQL Server’s native tools.
Not only does this approach enable real-time business, it also secures it by optionally keeping your data encrypted from end-point to end-point. As can be seen in table 1 below, NitroAccelerator can have a smile-inducing payback on many of your daily tasks.
