Webcast Abstract

Running SQL Server on a virtual machine is hardly a new technology, but it has special requirements that differ from a physical machine or many other virtual machines. Yet, far too often they are built based on old advice from back when machines were commonly physical or from a shared VM template that wasn’t designed with SQL Server in mind.

Come to this session aimed at SQL Server DBAs and VM administrators to learn what makes a SQL Server VM different from other VMs. We will cover licensing, OS considerations, common CPU and memory settings, disks, as well as backup and HA/DR considerations.

Speaker - Eric Blinn and Tim Fritz
