Session Description

Hugo Shebbeare will be presenting SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn

The presentation will discuss what High Availability is all about, and then focus on SQL 2012 AlwaysOn. This technology is the evolution of clustering databases. It provides flexible failover policy and is a great improvement over Database Mirroring, mainly due to the concept of availability groups.
