You want to look out for the differences between Always on in 2012 & 2014.?

AlwaysOn was introduced on MSSQL 2012 and enhanced on MSSQL 2014.
So, basically you can do more things with AlwaysOn in MSSQL 2014 than in MSSQL 2012.
Beside minor improvements the more important ones are that in MSSQL 2014 the maximum number of replicas is 8 (was 4 in MSSQL 2012) and now you can add an Azure Instance for the AG so you can use it for example for DR.

" MSSQL 2014 the maximum number of replicas is 8 (was 4 in MSSQL 2012) and now you can add an Azure Instance for the AG so you can use it for example for DR."

yes, as the read only AG replica can be round robin, right?

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

What you mean with that?

SQL2012 and SQL2014 replica can't be read/write anyway ?
Replicas can't never be write replicas. They are always Read-Only replicas.

"What you mean with that?"

means in case of read operation, the read request will route to diff replica at any one time, read request spread across diff replica evenly

"Replicas can't never be write replicas. They are always Read-Only replicas."

so SQL 2014 only do replica better than SQL 2012.

Ah, that depends on your connection type and how you configured the AG Listener. Doesn't do that by default, btw.

so SQL 2014 only do replica better than SQL 2012.
Not better but much (more number of replicas and possibility to use Azure as replica).
