Hi all,

If we have 2 Microsoft 2012 RDS servers is it correct that to have the RDS Broker service working if EITHER server goes off then we need High Availability which means using  FULL sql and if we have it on one RDS server then if that server goes off then there's no automatic connections to the other one ?

If you want truly high availability, you'd run two RDS Brokers and load balance them in some way. And yes, that means they need SQL on the back end, and to prevent *that* from being a single point of failure, you are looking at SQL Always-On or similar (two or more SQL servers.)

Most smaller RDS deployments accept some downtime due to the cost and complexity of HA.
