SQL Server 2012's Failover Clustering and AlwaysOn HA Groups rely on windows server failover clustering, which requires a domain and domain controllers, so I would have to say that those two options are not possible.  You can use replication with SQL Server authentication as an alternative, though.

That is true, you MUST have ActiveDirectory in order to set up a Cluster Based HA.
