I used 2005's mirroring and it was rock-solid. But the secondary/failover db was not readable.

Does anyone know if that is still true with SQL server 2012 - the mirror database at the target is not readable?
Thanks, Jack

With 2005 and 2012, you can read the mirrored database by creating a database snapshot on it. But I think what you are looking for is the readable secondary/read-intent replica option of an AlwaysOn Availability Group, which is like an advanced version of database mirroring.
