There's more to NUMA than physical boundaries in your server hardware. This session will dive deep into pNUMA & vNUMA settings within vSphere, Windows & SQL Server to aid you in getting the settings right to maximize performance.

Shawn Meyers is the lead Principle Architect for Microsoft SQL Server at House of Brick, where he has contributed his knowledge and services for the past 3.5 years. Shawn has worked in IT for 20+ years and specifically with SQL Server for 18+ years, beginning with version 6.5. Shawn’s recent work includes advancing the VMware/House of Brick SQL Server VBCA best practices IP, including more advanced features and additional large or wide virtual machines.

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.
