AlwaysOn is a great new feature to SQL Server 2012 that allows consuming clients to have a mirroring and failover database solution all transparently for a single named instance. SharePoint is one such consumer of SQL and depends on having a solid connectivity to run. If SQL goes down, so does SharePoint so it’s well within our interests to configure a bullet-proof SQL Server solution that just won’t die.
