Executive Summary

As IT organizations have become increasingly familiar with virtualization technology and begun using it for more than simple server consolidation, they may also be considering virtualizing additional applications in their environment. Microsoft SQL Server, for example, is a widely used database platform that can support other Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and Microsoft System Center, as well as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software such as the SAP ERP and Oracle PeopleSoft applications and custom-developed applications. SQL Server 2005 utilizes a 64-bit architecture that can provide enhanced performance and capacity compared with previous versions as well as enhanced memory utilization by allowing the system to directly address more memory than previous 32-bit versions of SQL Server.
