I am running SQL 2012 Standard (so i do not believe Always On is an option for me) we have a need to have an almost real time (Within an hour) copy of our production DB for reporting purposes.  Some of our reports cause severe lag in production so there is a desire to seperate reporting onto its own server.

I was planning to use log shipping for this, but now find that if any report is running when the next import tries, it will fail.  Mirroring I don't think allows the 2nd copy to be active at the same time ... What is the best way to setup a secondary instance of SQL for report (read only) access to the production data without impacting production ?
