How Microsoft sets up their own SQL Servers.

This is an interesting blog article from Microsoft.com Operations (http://blogs.technet.com/mscom/archive/2006/02/13/419406.aspx). It details how they setup their SQL Servers. It is interesting that they do not use clusters, preferring log shipping to keep multiple servers up to date, and perform "manual failover" from web sites by modifying connection strings. Also interesting is that they run SQL Servers behind Network Load Balancers.

Thanks to Mark H. for passing this article along.
