What is the High Availability Story for Search and SharePoint 2013?

 There is some great news on the search HA front with SharePoint 2013, as this release has more functionality than any previous version. You can now configure full redundancy on all components! 


There are several places to obtain HA details as it applies to search. This wiki page will help you find what you are looking for.

The stretched farm guidelines were just updated in April 2013. This is for customers that want to spread the topology between two data centers. The two supported configurations are Synchronous mirroring and AO AG with synchronous-commit for availability. See the following articles for guidance on stretched farms: 

The table below summarizes the TN article "Supported high availability and disaster recovery options for SharePoint databases" Please refer to that article for up to date details and update this wiki if you find a discrepancy.
