The February 1st SQL Server Innovators Guild meeting features a discussion on “Consolidated SQL Server Architectures” with Ben DeBow.
Consolidated SQL Server Architectures
There is more than one way to approach a consolidation effort, and you must understand the pros and cons of each. Consolidate on physical hardware? Use virtualization? Multiple instance per server or VM? How will availability be achieved for a consolidated environment? These topics and more will be addressed in this session.
