Running SQL Server on a virtual machine is hardly a new technology, but it has special requirements that differ from a physical machine and should be met to achieve the best performance. Yet, far too often SQL Server VMs are built based on physical models or from a shared VM template that wasn’t designed with SQL Server in mind.
In this webcast, Eric Blinn, Sr Data Architect for Squire Patton Boggs and Tim Fritz, Database Specialist at Quest, will discuss what makes a SQL Server VM different from other VMs. They will cover licensing, OS considerations, common CPU and memory settings and disks, as well as backup and HA/DR considerations.
