You may find it hard to believe, but it is possible to maintain SQL Server high availability and not spend a fortune. In fact, you can spend a fortune and still not get SQL Server high availability. Sound like a paradox? Not really. SQL Server high availability is not a direct function of how much you spend. Instead, high availability is more about what you do right and what you do wrong.

Sometimes we just have to move on. Your current mail server may just not be meeting your needs, so you’ve put up something new. But what about old mail? If your servers are identical (Sendmail to Sendmail, etc.) or use the same mailbox storage format, you may be able to just transfer files directly. If not, read on..
Virtually every SQL Server runs one or more daily jobs. And most likely, runs many weekly jobs. Unfortunately, most DBAs set up jobs, and then forget about them, unless of course they break. But if they run day after day without any problems, most jobs are forgotten about.
So, you are now or will soon be SOX-compliant: what’s next? Congratulations, you are on your way to or you just completed your 404!!! Internal auditors, Business, IT, everyone is breathing better and everyone should definitely be proud of it!

The best place to start your SQL Server performance audit is to begin with the Performance Monitor (System Monitor). By monitoring a few key counters over a 24 hour period, you should get a pretty good feel for any major hardware bottlenecks your SQL Server is experiencing.
Over the past two articles, I have done my best to try to go in further detail about the differences in the Web hosting world. We have gone into further discussion about both virtual Web hosting and reseller Web hosting and I hope you have been able to pick up a few nuggets of knowledge along the way. Now is the time to start talking about the big daddy of the Web hosting accounts, your buddy and mine, Mister dedicated Web hosting.

Linux (and its close relation Unix) and Windows 2000 (and its close cousin Windows NT) are types of software (known as operating systems) that web servers use to do the kind of things that web servers do. You do not need to know any real detail of either to make a decision as to which you need but here a few guidelines.

IIS is Microsoft’s Internet Information Server running on Windows Servers family. Tomcat is world wide used web server built on Java platform for JSP/Servlets. Due to ease of operating and maintaining IIS in windows environment, we still prefer to buy the windows server and run IIS for websites and by default we run Tomcat on port 8080 as the default installation.

What Is Caching? How Does It Apply to the Web?
Caching is a well-known concept in computer science: when programs continually access the same set of instructions, a massive performance benefit can be realized by storing those instructions in RAM. This prevents the program from having to access the disk thousands or even millions of times during execution by quickly retrieving them from RAM. Caching on the Web is similar in that it avoids a roundtrip to the origin Web server each time a resource is requested and instead retrieves the file from a local computer’s browser cache or a proxy cache closer to the user.
At many organizations I doubt red lights flash with the sound of blaring sirens when backups fail in production environments, but I believe at every organization backups are one of the most critical IT functions. Of all backups, database backups, by most accounts, are considered the most critical. I know this is certainly true for me as a SQL Server DBA. I am sure at one point in all of our careers we were too busy to check all of our backups across all SQL Servers, with a million responsibilities on a daily basis. I know some of us were lucky and made it unscathed, while others were not so lucky with backup failures that caused extensive data loss and long downtimes. Now when IT Departments are forced to “do more with less,” it is time to put the necessary SQL Server Alerts in place for backup and restore operations in order to more easily monitor and streamline this critical process.
While, technically, all of a Microsoft ASP.NET server control’s functionality can be performed on the server-side, often the usability of a server control can be greatly enhanced by adding client-side script. For example, the ASP.NET validation Web controls perform all validation checks on the server-side. However, for uplevel browsers, the validation Web controls also emit client-side script so that validation can be performed on the client-side as well. This means that users of those browsers get a more responsive, dynamic experience.
A dedicated server is a single computer on a web-hosting network that is leased or rented, and dedicated to just one customer. A service provider monitors the computer’s hardware, network connectivity, and routing equipment, while the customer generally controls and maintains the server software. Dedicated servers are most often used by those who’ve outgrown typical hosting accounts and now require massive amounts of data space and bandwidth, those with mission critical web sites, web hosting companies, or those who have special needs. Dedicated servers are housed in data centers, where service providers can monitor them close-up and have hands-on access to them.
Is your organization faced with pending audits resulting in long and tedious meetings to try to achieve compliance? Have you been hearing a foreign set of acronyms around the water cooler like HIPAA, SOX, GLBA and SAS 70? Have these new sets of requirements been causing consternation for your DBAs, Developers and Management? Have you been trying to figure how you are going to write the code to capture the data needed for the continuous audits in between the remainder of the company projects?
The SME Server (formerly E-Smith) normally rejects attempt to send mail outside of its own domain if you are connecting from somewhere other than the local lan. This is correct behaviour; otherwise anyone could use your server as a mail relay and you’d become an inadvertent spammer rather quickly.
Planning decisions are critical for a successful firewall implementation. Missing some of the most important points when designing a firewall implementation can jeopardize our information integrity and the overall network security.

E-Commerce, E-Business, Internet Shopping, On-line Storefronts, Digital Storefronts, Electronic Shopping, Internet Commerce, Web Commerce, B2B, B2C, etc. are all terms used by marketing to grab a “mind share”. They all refer to buying and selling over the Internet.
A November 2003 survey published by the UK-based Internet services company Netcraft made the claim that the Apache Web server “has a significant percentage gain” over its chief rival, Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS), and now controls over two-thirds of the global Web server market. Only days later, Port80 Software released a survey stating that “Microsoft IIS maintains dominance of the corporate Web server market” with 53.8 percent of the market. With two seemingly similar surveys drawing contradictory conclusions, clearly the question of whose software powers the majority of the Web server market demands a deeper examination.
Wireless technology is evolving at a rapid pace. There is a lot of talk about mobile and wireless computing and there is also a fair amount of hype. However, the one thing that is conspicuously absent from much of these discussions on mobile and wireless computing is a discussion on what these devices are connecting to. The fact is, most of the value, in terms of content and capabilities of the device, is a result of interacting with a server of some type. This is true whether we are talking about microbrowsers such as WAP and iMode, J2ME clients, or short message service (SMS) and email. Behind the scenes these devices are interacting with services that reside somewhere on a network. These services handle much of the complex details of the features offered by wireless devices. Although there are complexities that the mobile device must deal with, a well-designed wireless architecture delegates as much complexity as possible to the server. This is desirable because servers have more processing capabilities and do not have the power restrictions of mobile devices (i.e., servers don’t run on batteries that are worn down by the CPU). This article examines wireless computing from the server’s perspective. First, the problems of wireless computing or the public Internet are discussed. Then various models that help address these problems are provided.
