Create Supported SQL Server 2008 Virtual Machines -- Rely on Server Virtualization to run SQL Server 2008
Virtualization is taking the market by storm even in these tough economic times. It makes sense – virtualize an application and it automatically becomes liberated from a particular physical machine.
