Abstract

bWinInteractive Entertainment AG is a company that operates platforms for sports betting, casino games, and games of skill. The sports betting infrastructure supports about a million bets per day and hosts 100 Terabytes of information across 100 instances of SQL Server. During peak loads, SQL Server handles more than 30,000 database transactions per second. Imagine the amount of angry people there would be if the system went down after they placed bets. This would ruin the company’s credibility in the industry. Designing fault tolerance in your environment is critical no matter what database platform you support or industry you are employed in. There is no doubt that bWin’s solution involved highly available fault tolerant technologies. These technologies you will learn about in this chapter. If you are interested in reading more about the bWin case study, check out the following URL: www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?CaseStudyID=4000001470.
