I’m here at the keynote for day 2 of PASS and we’re watching a demo of their new Always On feature for Denali.  And it all looks well and good, but I can’t help but wonder what’s wrong with it.  Always On gives you the ability to define HA groups and in just a few clicks you can configure automatic failover, and synch to multiple servers.  Again, that all looks fine up on stage, but I, like many others, am witholding any opinion until I get in there myself.  I’m sure we all remember the dacpac fiasco.  It looked wonderful on stage and even I was very excited about it.  But when we all went to play with it we found out very quickly that it had more problems than solutions.

Trust me, I’ll be writing plenty on this in the future.
