  1. Challenge

    Create SQL Databases

    For the first task we need to create 2 SQL Databases with Standard 10 DTUs in the East US region.

  2. Challenge

    Configure a Failover Group for Both Databases

    We will then configure Active Geo Replication for 1 database and a failover group for both databases in the West US server. The failover group should have a secondary SQL server in West US as the failover option with East being primary.

  3. Challenge

    Configure Long Term Backups for both Databases

    The backups for both databases should be weekly backups stored for 2 years and monthly backups should be configured and stored for 4 years. Daily backups will be handled by the default backups provided for in SQL DB. Create an LTR in both West and East servers.
