Lync Server 2013 came with many Architectural changes in design and deployment and one of the notable change is the discontinuation of SQL clustering and support for SQL Mirroring for Back End Database High Availability.
This change made Organizations that already implemented SQL Clustering to have some pain and plan to switchover to SQL Mirroring to make it as a supported solution for Back End Database high availability when migrating to Lync Server 2013.
