In this session I will illustrate how SQL Server AlwaysOn can be used to achieve tier 1 HA. I will speak about what the common misconceptions are with SQL Server HA. I will then detail what considerations there are within designing and implementing AlwaysOn. This session will also demonstrate how to implement AlwaysOn,
