SQL Server 2012, as it's now known, is currently available as an RC, and it's expected to become available during the first half of 2012 in three versions: Enterprise, Business Intelligence and Standard.
Further, Microsoft has advertized a new feature in SQL Server 2012 called Always On, which is a tool for disaster recovery and high-availability features in SQL Server.
In addition, Always On will allow users to experience clear scales of reporting and backup workloads, and it will also provide support for FileTable and FILESTREAM, which brings first-class high-availability to complex data types.
Another new feature is the ability to create the so-called availability groups, or groups of databases to which users can assign failovers to move.
From the article:
"Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 can be configured to work with SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups. SQL Server AlwaysOn enhances the capabilities of Database Mirroring, helps ensure availability of application databases, provides an integrated set of options including automatic and manual failover of a group of databases and simplifies deployment of high availability using integrated configuration wizard. A Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 instance that is configured against a SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Group can provide high availability and failover capabilities like many other applications that are built on SQL Server AlwaysOn technology.
