We’ll be looking into the pros and cons of moving SQL Servers into a virtual server environment. Specifically we’ll be looking into when it’s a good idea and when it’s probably not a good idea.
Virtualisation changes the way you need to monitor the performance of a virtualised instance of SQL Server. In this session I will demonstrate a balanced and well-rounded approach to performance monitoring in the virtual world along with best practices to avoid poor virtualised performance.
With SQL Server 2008, you can control environments using Policy based management and with the Resource Governor to ensure that your SQL Server are compliant to enterprise standards
This session will teach you how to successfully plan, implement and manage SQL Server consolidation and virtualization within your organization
SQL Virtualisation using the Microsoft Assessment Planning tool and the SQL Consolidation Toolkit
These two technologies can make a very big – and very bad – difference in how your SQL Server performs. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get the real, honest lowdown from a virtualization administrator, a SAN administrator, and a DBA? Wouldn’t it be even better if one person had done all three, and could give you the pros and cons of each point of view? That person is Brent Ozar, a Microsoft Certified Master who’s been there and done that.
Planning and design considerations for running a SQL Server consolidation project.
This session provides details on approaching a SQL Server virtualisation project.
