How Do Microsoft SQL Availability Groups Work?

In the diagram you will note two dedicated database servers configured as a single database cluster, or availability group, for Microsoft SQL. An availability group, such as the one shown, can serve as the back-end database for many types of services including: mobile applications, financial applications, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and more. Each availability group contains an active node and at least one passive node. If the active node in the availability group fails, a passive node will automatically take over SQL services and continue responding to requests.
