As far as a cluster is concerned, you are limited to Active/Passive for a given database.

If you want to have multiple instances accessing the same database, then the two simplest things are:

a) Mirroring. This works OK in SQL 2005 and above, but is greatly improved in SQL 2012. Mirroring will allow you to have one instance doing all the updates while the other instances read committed data.

b) Peer to Peer replication. This is what we use. It does support multiple instances updating the same set of data and sharing the updates, but you need your application to be designed to support this. We need P2P as we populate scale-out servers at multiple sites, which cannot be done with mirroring, but direct all our updates to a single instance because our applications cannot cope with multi-site update.

c) Merge replication. The typical use case for this is where you have subscriber databases that may not be connected to your network full time. It allows more flexibility than P2P, but is more complex to maintain.

All clustering in SQL Server is inherently Active/Passive. A given database can only be online to a single node at any one time.

People use the term Active/Active to indicate they have installed multiple SQL Server clusters, each one with its own set of databases. In this scenario, SQL Cluster 1 can have its active databases on windows cluster node A, and SQL Cluster 2 can have its active databases on windows cluster node B. This means both windows cluster nodes are active, but they are active with completely separate databases.
