When Virtualization Leaves You Hanging


When Virtualization Leaves You Hanging

When Virtualization Leaves You Hanging: Protect Your Environment from Application, OS and Infrastructure Faults Virtualization is great for protecting your SQL Server instances from infrastructure faults. Unfortunately, it can leave you hanging when it comes to protection from OS- or application-related failures. In this informative webinar, Carl Berglund will walk you through the best options for SQL Server application and OS resiliency. He’ll cover the most effective approaches, with pros and cons for each, and will help you avoid common gotchas—including protecting yourself from your own “pilot errors.”

Carl Berglund has more than 20 years of experience helping businesses source and implement complex datacenter infrastructures. Currently DH2i’s director of products, Carl has also held senior business development roles at HP and PolyServe, where he helped drive enterprise organizations’ SQL Server consolidation, virtualization, and optimization projects. As a technology evangelist, Carl helps organizations reduce spend on overall SQL Server lifecycle costs while reducing risk and maximizing infrastructure ROI. He is a regular speaker and author on Windows datacenter issues.

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.
