Windows authentication support for Microsoft SQL Server 

Secure the connection between your Orion server and your SQL server

Increase your security compliance by using Windows authentication for both day-to-day data storage and retrieval between your Orion server and your SQL server and during the initial setup of your database server in the Configuration Wizard. 

Do not use a Windows account with a password policy applied.

You can also enable SSL directly in the Configuration Wizard to encrypt the information exchanged between your Orion server or additional polling engines and your SQL server, independent of SSL settings on your SQL server.

SSL must be configured on your SQL server to utilize this feature.

Support for High Availability 2.0, including multi-subnet deployments

Distribute HA pool members to different subnets in this new update to SolarWinds High Availability for near instantaneous, automated failover to a secondary server on a different subnet. Create an HA pool , update your secondary server, and activate HA in your current Orion environment just as easily as before.
