Can anybody point me to any VMware statements of support (or not) for SQL Server 2012 “Always On” replica groups?
This new feature of SQL Server is a combination of clustering and SQL Server mirroring technologies, and is better suited to virtual infrastructure than the traditional fail-over clusters using shared disks. Database mirroring has long been supported, without any specific restrictions by VMWare but I have not been able to find any clear statement on VMWare support for SQL Server 2012 “Always on” clusters. The main VMware KB article
on this subject makes no mention of SQL Server 2012 or “Always on”.
