Do you have a large and rapidly increasing number of SQL Server instances to support? Are your SQL Server costs and administration requirements growing out of control? Many IT departments are faced with similar challenges, as new databases are being deployed left and right in support of a broad range of apps. To make matters worse, each SQL database is typically deployed on a dedicated server, with tremendous over-provisioning of capacity.

SQL Server consolidation is not new. Customers have been cutting costs out of their SQL deployments for years. Without virtualization, there are two fairly common consolidation approaches: Multi-Instancing and Database Stacking.

VMware provides Database teams with another option to consolidate SQL. Learn about the main benefits of this approach, compared to conventional database consolidation.
