Getting started with SQL servers

Copper Contributor

Hello SQL Server community!

I'm new to SQL Server and interested in learning about Always On Availability Groups. I've heard it's a powerful feature for ensuring high availability and disaster recovery, but I'm not sure where to start. Can anyone help me get started?

Here are a few questions to kick off the discussion:

  1. What exactly are Always On Availability Groups, and how do they differ from other high availability solutions in SQL Server?
  2. What are the benefits of using Availability Groups, especially for someone new to SQL Server administration?
