Joyous tidings of autumnal coolness to you all. We are ecstatic to have Ryan Adams come out again and show us how to prevent harrowing tales of SQL outage. AlwaysOn has made database availability easier than ever. I encourage ALL of you to maintain your own learning labs, but if you don't want to spin up your Virtual library of lab machines at least check out the Microsoft labs: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs?id=J+avMPtWlXk. Search for "Exploring AlwaysOn Availability Groups in SQL Server 2014"
This session is 90% live demonstrations. I'll walk you through a complete AlwaysOn deployment. You will see firsthand how to install and configure an AlwaysOn Failover Cluster. I'll also show you how to setup an AlwaysOn Availability Group across 5 nodes using both the GUI and T-SQL so you know why and when to use each method. I'll finish up by showing how you can connect to a readable secondary.
