Speaker: Shawn Meyers, Principal Architect House of Brick

Summary: You will learn the basics of running SQL server in a virtual environment. Covering sizing, storage, memory, network, and compute resources. Review of areas where virtualization can save your organization money on hardware and licensing. We will discuss common mistakes organizations make when migrating to a virtual environment. Lastly we will show how to monitor your virtual machine which are hosting your SQL servers, from the virtual layer. This session will talk about virtualization in general which apply to any virtual platform or hypervisor, but the samples and possible demos will be VMware specific. It is assumed the audience knows best practices for running SQL server in a physical environment and will be covering things which are different.
