Is Cross Subnet Failover supported in SQL Server 2012 Standard edition? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to find out if Cross Subnet Failover is support in SQL Server 2012 Standard edition? From the documentation I can find it appears that AlwaysOn Failover Cluster Instances is supported for two nodes but there is no definitive answer regarding Cross Subnet failover. Just trying to figure out if it is possible or if I need enterprise or move my replication nodes on the same subnet.

    Thanks David

  • Sorry chaps, found the answer :-(

    Licensing SQL Server for High Availability
    SQL Server software can be configured so that if one server fails, its processing will be picked up, recovered
    and continued by another server. All editions of SQL Server 2012 provide basic high availability features
    including backup log shipping, database mirroring and two-node failover clustering. Advanced (AlwaysOn)
    high availability features in SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition include enhanced support for multiple, active
    (readable) secondary servers and support for multi-site failover clustering.
