With the release of SQL Server 2005 Microsoft introduced Database Mirroring as a core feature of the database engine. This software-only based solution has proven to be very popular, although it does have a number of limitations, such as support for only one non-readable mirrored database and not supporting multiple mirrored databases. Additionally, failover can be more complex for multi database solutions (SharePoint immediately springs to mind).
With the release of AlwaysOn Availability groups in SQL Server 2012 Microsoft has changed the paradigm of how you can design high-availability solutions and offload reporting and backups from your production OLTP database solutions.
In this session Victor Isakov (MCA, MCM, MCT, MVP) will cover this new feature of SQL Server 2012. He will give an overview of the architecture, current limitations and design considerations of AlwaysOn Availability groups before demonstrating how to set it up. Finally Victor will go through various use cases of where you might like to take advantage of this new technology.
