Building Microsoft System Center Cloud – SCOrch 2012 R2 – Orchestrator 2012 R2 installation – Complex deployment


Simplified deployment with all features on one server is described in the Orchestrator simplified installation guide in the previous article.

Highly-available databases in AlwaysOn Available Groups

I recommend you to use the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Available Groups for every System Center products that supports it.

After installation

Highly-available VM with SQL Server

If you do not want to use SQL Server AlwaysOn Available Groups you can simply deploy a separate VM and install SQL Server. But I suggest you to use highly-available databases in AlwaysOn Available Groups even when the installed System Center product is not highly-available.
