Lync 2013 Enterprise with SQL cluster

    Question

  • So I read that Lync 2013 doesn't support a SQL cluster for a new installation but it appears it supports it if you are migrating from 2010.

    What i'm curious about is it looks like Microsoft is doing away with database mirroring after SQL 2012. So why did they make Lync require database mirroring for high availability?

  • The time to start developing Lync Server 2013 is earlier than the plan to deprecate database mirroring. That is maybe the reason.

  • Well actually I don't think they support it even if you are migrating... but still why require technology you are about to do away with?

  • Hopefully they start supporting the Always On feature with SQL 2012 or failover cluster in the future

    Thanks!
