Create SQL Cluster VMs
I went to test SQL High Availability or Always On, it is too complicated to setup all. If there is a Wizard which will straight install SQL cluster up and running with multiple VMs sharing same storage and datacenter would be helpful.
If there are pre configured services like,
1. SQL Cluster (number of nodes)
2. SQL Replicated VMs, First Primary, Second Merge Replicator or whatever. We can choose number of replicators.
3. Setup two VMs or more with Mirroring, Replication, Logshipping etc, all configured once and up and running.
4. Auto log backup SQL to Azure Storage every 15 mins with daily full backup service. This is now possible with SSIS in SQL 2014.
This automated deployment of multi-VM solutions is something we would like to add to IaaS.
