Precon Abstract:

Microsoft MVP and VMware vExpert David Klee of Heraflux Technologies leads this full-day introduction to enabling and managing a virtualized SQL Server environment. The focus of the course is to help those infrastructure systems professionals who manage a business-critical virtual SQL Server environment understand the impact of SQL Server on their environments and how to better architect the platform to maximize availability and performance. Participants will gain exposure to the impact of virtualized SQL Server to all layers of virtualization underneath SQL Server, from storage to hypervisor to the SQL Server instance, and will learn how to construct the entire stack with a strong emphasis on SQL Server performance. High availability, disaster recovery, multi-tenancy, and performance tuning topics will all be explored during the session.

The following topics will be addressed during the course:

  • What is SQL Server?
  • The SQL Server Virtual Machine
  • Networking, Support, and Licensing
  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery
  • Performance Investigation and Tuning of the Entire Stack
