SQL Server on VMware - William "Bill" Ellis
Monday, April 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM
We’ll review SQL Server on VMware together. Many shops are already running QA databases in VMware. The economics of VMware are such that it will be used everywhere, even production. Virtualization can have profound impact on performance. Today’s DBA needs to be aware of the issues. Plus help their employer get the most out of VMware. Some shops are only scaling to 10 VMs on a host; others, a 100 VMs on a host. While there are numerous factors involved, the environment provides plenty of opportunity for optimization.
Bill Ellis has been involved with APM for several years while working for Precise Software Solutions, Inc. While Precise doesn’t have the best name recognition, it is used by boutique shops where performance matters the most. Precise’s focus on SQL statement execution time analysis in I/O. Many other solutions omit this crucial measurement.
