Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. The next major version of SQL Server (referred to as 'Denali'), is SQL Server 2012. Its features and enhancements include AlwaysOn SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances and Availability Groups which provide a set of options to improve database availability.

SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services Blueprints is a blueprint series, and is a step-by-step tutorial with various tasks in it for readers to complete.
