Format: Hardcover
I am really surprised this books has no reviews yet. I owned it since 2008 and learned a lot from it. The book is a practical approach about SQL2005 High Availability features. It shows you step by step how to implement SQL2005 failover, Log Shipping, Database Mirror and replication; those are the core items for SQL2005 HA technology. You will find a lot of screenshoots, almost for every step, so you will find it easy to read and follow. There is also a dedicated chapter for Backup and Restore, chapter #3. Has some theory about how SQL handles the logs and how you can backup and restore via T-SQL; I really like that chapter and the explanations are really good, with lots of pictures as well.

This is the kind of book you should keep at work, not at home, so you can grab it and find any reference very quickly. Very practical and useful. There is not much troubleshooting explanations if things goes wrong but I think that's not the objective on this particular book.

Was looking for a similar and most recent book for SQL2008 and guess what :-) ... is on the market as well, same author: Pro SQL Server 2008 Failover Clustering. I can not make a comment yet about that one, but my expectations are high. I just ordered it from Amazon today and will be reviewing it soon.
