SQL Server can run great in virtual environments like Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, but you can dramatically increase the odds of success if you know which knobs to tweak. Just like SQL Server, virtualization software doesn't always work best with the default settings, and knowing which settings change SQL Server performance is key. In this session, Brent will explain:

  • Why virtual CPUs, memory, and storage are different
  • Hidden gotchas that often hurt virtual performance
  • How to stress test your virtual server to find limits
