Active-Active Geodatabase with Versioning

Please help me here.

We are getting ready to migrate from Oracle to SQL Server and in the process our Network group has determined that it is a good time to make everything highly available.  Their suggestion is to have an active-active environment for our enterprise geodatabase.  Last year, ESRI suggested to us to use an active-passive environment for our geodatabase.  Of course versioning is turned on with quite a few feature classes.

Am I correct in thinking that the active-active environment is not necessarily a good idea with versioned data?  In a file-based system with non-versioned data, I can see where this makes total sense, not so much with versioning.

I hope someone has some experience with this.

Any advice is totally helpful!
