Successfully virtualizing database platforms such as SQL Server requires a different approach than other servers in your enterprise. Maintaining reliable database performance after virtualizing the database is dependent upon providing a clear view of performance metrics beyond traditional SQL Server metrics. DBAs need insight into these performance metrics at the virtual layer in order to apply effective performance tuning methods.

You will learn:

  • Key virtual performance tips and tricks
  • Which metrics matter the most
  • The architectural design choices that will help you prepare and validate your VMware environment for your database workloads
