Database Mirroring

Derik Hammer has chosen Database Mirroring as his favorite feature:

With the end of SQL Server 2005, we also will soon see the end of database mirroring. There is a new feature releasing with SQL Server 2016 called Basic Availability Groups. This is the replacement for database mirroring. The use cases and limitations will appear very similar to database mirroring but it will use the Availability Group technology. In theory this will be like a stim-pack for the database mirroring feature while leaving it available in Standard Edition. Let’s cross our fingers that the Windows Failover Cluster components don’t slow down the failovers like it did with AGs.

A bold choice, but that “available in standard edition” thing is huge for smaller organizations which can’t afford Enterprise (especially with The Licensing Changes of 2012).
