I have mirroring set up for our SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard database server.

Questions

  • How do I ensure high availability for reporting services if the server goes down?
  • Is there a kind of mirroring available for that as well?

Mirroring is for individual database. For reporting services, you can user web server farms (AKA scale out deployment). It will allow multiple servers in a cluster. You will need SQL Server Enterprise Edition for this feature, though, as well as a load balancer (Windows has this or NW hardware like BigIP, etc.). See here for more info:
