SQL Server brings another enhancement to Availability Groups for us to use resources more appropriately.
With the release of SQL Server 2016 and Windows Server 2016, we are able to create Availability Groups across domains or in Non-Domain environments. To achieve this we need to use certificates for each instance in the Availability Group to be able to communicate with each other.

The approach on when to apply service packs has changed over time, and makes it very important to have the process included into your support windows. This post takes you through how to apply a Service Pack into an Availability Group environment.
