I am asked to prepare a Database Strategy for my Company? My company is using MSSQL Server 2016 with 1 instance and 10 databases. What should I include in the Database Strategy? Any format or template?

In strategy what do you try to ask?

  • RTO: Recovery time objective, how do you have to restore data and how much data are you allowed to loose,
  • SLA: How fast does it need to be and how are maintenance windows managed between the data owners,
  • Features: What version of SQL server do you need,
  • Data sizing: How much data will the system have in N years from now, do you have a storage strategy, RAM needs?,
  • Data retention: how long do you need to retain the data for legal compliance,
  • Users: Data sensitivity and authentication schemes that need to be supported,
