Creating SQL Server Database Copies Across AWS Direct Connect into AWS EC2

This post was originally published on this site

In August 2017 we announced the release of our Hybrid Cloud with AWS and the demonstration in this blog is a follow-up to show how to leverage FlashRecover Snapshots with Microsoft SQL Server to make copies and present to an AWS EC2 virtual machine.

Below is a high-level overview of what is going on between the FlashArray//M20 and the AWS EC2 virtual machine. Now there is a lot of configuration steps to setup the connectivity between the equipment in the Equinix facility/Cloud Exchange, AWS Direct Connect and AWS EC2 instances.
