Virtual SQL Servers, Actual Performance

Virtual SQL Servers, Actual Performance Join us for a webinar on May 11, 2016 at 1:00 PM EDT. Register now! https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2511549914077162244 Virtualizing your business-critical SQL Servers should not imply that they will run slower than if they were physical. When properly architected and managed, virtual SQL Servers should be equally as fast as their physical counterparts, if not faster. However, if not properly constructed, silent and seemingly random performance killers can strike and significantly hurt your database performance. This session is packed with many tips and tricks gained from years of experience for getting the most performance from your virtual SQL Servers. The major roadblocks to performance will be discussed and the knowledge gained will help you work with your infrastructure engineers so you can optimize the system stack for performance. Tools, techniques, and processes will be demonstrated to help you measure and validate the system performance of the key components underneath your data. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. View System Requirements

The Virtualization Virtual Chapter (aka SIG) is dedicated to better management of SQL Servers in virtual environments like Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere.  We:

  • Help the community by producing things like monthly training webcasts, a centralized list of helpful virtualization-savvy administrators, and a periodic report of what works well under virtualization and what isn't quite working yet.

  • Help virtualization vendors by getting training and configuration information out to the people who need it, and helping the vendors build a better product with our feedback.

  • Help PASS management by building assets that PASS can leverage (like a library of training content) and showing that PASS solves real DBA problems.
