Custom Web Applications Environment
Some Proseware customers request custom web-based applications that require more than just databases, such as SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) and CLR stored procedures.
Proseware uses a Hyper-V server named Host1. Host1 has four instances of SQL Server 2014 Enterprise in the host operating system. The instances are mirrored on a server named Host2.
Host1 also hosts four virtual machines named VM1, VM2, VM3, and VM4. VM1 has SQL Server 2005 Standard installed. VM2 has SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition installed. VM3 has SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition installed. VM4 has SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition installed.
Host1 uses a SAN to store all of the data and log files for the four SQL Server instances and the four virtual machines.
Websites and Basic Web Apps Environment
Proseware has two physical servers named WebServer1 and WebData1. WebServer1 hosts basic web apps and websites for its customers. WebData1 has a database for each website and each basic web app that Proseware hosts. WebData1 has four cores and 8 GB of RAM.
Each website database contains customer information for billing purposes. Proseware generates a consolidated report that contains data from all of these databases.
The relevant databases on WebData1 are:
*CWDB: Currently 60 GB and is not expected to exceed 100 GB. CWDB contains a table named Personallinfo.
*MovieReviewDB: Currently 5 GB and is not expected to exceed 10 GB.
Proseware has a web app for the marketing department. The web app uses an Azure SQL database. Managers in the marketing department occasionally bulk load data by using a custom application. The database is updated daily.
Proseware identifies the following issues:
* Lack of planning and knowledge has complicated the database environment
* Customers who have web apps hosted on Webserver1 report frequent outages caused by failures on WebDatal. The current uptime is less than 90 percent .
* internally users complain of slow performance by the CRM application when the databases fail over to CRM-B
* WebDatal has no high availability option for the databases or the server.
* An internal licensing audit of SQL Server identifies that Proseware is non compliant. Hostl, CRMA, and CRM-B are licensed properly. VM1 VM2, VM3, VM4, and WebDatal are unlicensed.
Proseware identifies the following business requirements:
Proseware hosts a database for a company named Contoso, Ltd. Currently, all of the employees at Contoso can access all of the data in the database.
Contoso plans to limit user access to the CWDU database so that customer service representatives can see only the data from the PersonalInfo table that relates to their own customers.
