I have a customer who have an existing 1.5Tb data warehouse and are currently planning for a complete refresh of the DW on a new environment. Their infrastructure manager has organised 2 servers with SQL 2017 standard on each and has now asked me to plan a HA/DR plan for the new DW database/instance.
I immediately thought of using AlwaysOn Availability Groups, although I have never used them before, and none of the articles I read talk about typical data warehouse workloads - it's all OLTP applications. With a large daily ETL process and a smaller intra-day ETL process running on their current DW, will that have an impact on how we approach this?
Thanks - any help to point me in the right direction here would be beneficial!
