Always On Availability Groups offer a huge leap forward in terms of high availability. This sessions is a demo based introduction to the high availability changes in SQL 2012 emphasizing key features and benefits.

During the demonstration we will show how to seamlessly upgrade a database from SQL 2005+ to SQL 2012 with ZERO down time and then use the Availability Group features to simplify reporting, availability and disaster recovery.

This session will be useful for anyone who is working in a high availability environment or currently using replication to provide reporting and looking for a neater solution.
