It wasn’t that long ago that SQL Server was considered too resource-intensive to successfully virtualize. A new generation of hardware and advances in vSphere have made it much more common however it's still easy to make mistakes that can result in poorly performing SQL Server VMs. This week we discuss SQL Server with Argenis Fernandez from Pure Storage.

Topics discussed:

  • OLTP\OLAP characteristics
  • Common misconceptions with virtualizing SQL Server
