Virtualized SQL Server Performance With VMware

Date Added: May 2009
Format: Webcast

VMware conducted a six-month intensive research project on the virtualization of Microsoft SQL Server. While a very large number of VMware customers were virtualizing demanding SQL instances, there remained many skeptics of the ability of VMware ESX to maintain performance of this critical application. The presenters detail the findings of internal research in two key areas: customer interviews to identify and correct performance problems, and quantifying opportunities for optimizing SQL performance in VMware ESX.
