XTIVIA’s Guide to AlwaysOn
AlwaysOn is Microsoft’s newest high-availability technology that’s set to eventually replace SQL Server Mirroring. With the ability to be configured on premises, in the cloud, or even in a hybrid solution, AlwaysOn allows for more flexibility in design than most other high availability technologies, and it’s robust enough to ensure that services stay up and running if a node goes down. AlwaysOn relies on existing and proven Microsoft technologies such as Active Directory, Windows File Sharing, Windows Failover Clustering, and SQL Server in order to create AlwaysOn Availability Groups, which control what databases are participating and how users connect to them. Often these services are already in place in a typical Windows Server environment and generally adds no additional costs.
