Impact of Adding a Node to a Windows Cluster on the Possible Owners property of existing SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances
A Windows Azure Virtual Machine is similar to a virtual machine run on premise except that it runs in Windows Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud. Starting with the Windows Azure 2012 Preview release, new Virtual Machine capabilities have been added to the Windows Azure. We support a number of scenarios for SQL Server running in Windows Azure in addition to moving existing SQL Server applications to Windows Azure Virtual Machines.
SQL Server 2012 has many hidden gems, one of them is the capability of recovering from memory corruption error. We will tell you how it works in this article. SQL Server is able to recover from memory corruption when hardware support is available. Platforms that support hardware memory scrubber can send notification to applications when memory corruption is detected. SQL Server responds to these notifications and attempts to repair the memory. Clean database pages in buffer pool are restored by reading the page again from disk. This new feature helps SQL Server to remain running even when there are hardware memory errors.
