  • Blog Post: AlwaysOn Asynchronous vs Synchronous Commit Performance for SharePoint

    Hot on the heels of the last analysis showing the performance hit for a synchronous SQL Server AlwaysOn cluster , re-running the same tests show a distinct performance boost when asynchronous commits are used. In fact it’s nearly the same as standalone at that point, which makes sense as DB updates aren...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint & SQL Server AlwaysOn vs Standalone Performance

    How to setup SharePoint with SQL Server AlwaysOn has been covered nicely now , but I’ve not covered the performance hit setting up such a system will incur.

    Just a quick note for anyone that used MOSS/SharePoint 2007 and is wondered why the option to change the indexer performance has been removed in SharePoint 2010/2013.
