Improving Data Center Performance through Virtualization of SQL Server Databases
Since Microsoft SQL Server fuels many line of business applications, hosting applications on virtual servers is a high value investment. Companies that consolidate servers through virtualization save money on hardware purchases, deployment and maintenance, software licenses, and power and cooling requirements. At the same time, they increase reliability with the easy load balancing and application migration that virtualization allows. And virtual servers and storage devices scale easily to affordably support inevitable database growth. Implementation of virtual servers is greatly simplified by working with a vendor that provides the hardware (servers and storage), software, and services required. Dell’s product offering and technical experience with virtual servers hosting Microsoft SQL Server makes it the vendor of choice.
