In the second part Michael showed us his audio equipment and how simple it is to record a podcast – impressive!

Session 3: Sharepoint with Sql Server 2012 Always On

Last but not least a session by Mario Spies (AvePoint) about SQL high availability.

Always On Failover Cluster: One (idle) failover cluster with shared storage – if your storage dies, your SharePoint is very sad…

Always On Availability Groups: Basically a mirror, up to 1:4 mirroring.

Mario Spies explaining the differences between SQL Always On and SQL Clustering.

Then Mario showed a live demo with failover – nice one! Learned a lot, thanks!
