You need to do this in a testing lab. First cold clone the DC and bring it up in test lab, then bring the server also up in a test lab. Check if DB's are getting mounted. Rest you can extract via outlook or Powershell. This what i do in such case. However, preferred way is to restore from backup.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
