Clustering vs. Mirroring
I'm in the process of upgrading from SQL2008 to 2012.
I've been extremely satisfied using a mirrored set with witness for high availability.
Page 514 states, "In some cases, database mirroring may be a better choice instead of clustering for high availability."
Given all the hoops you have to jump through for clustering WHEN IS CLUSTERING EVER A BETTER SOLUTION?????
The only benefit to clustering I can see is making more money for Microsoft.
What am I missing?
