A talk by Brent Ozar

These two technologies can make a very big - and very bad - difference in how your SQL Server performs. Wouldn't it be great if you could get the real, honest lowdown from a virtualization administrator, a SAN administrator, and a DBA? Wouldn't it be even better if one person had done all three, and could give you the pros and cons of each point of view? That person is Brent Ozar, a Microsoft Certified Master who's been there and done that.

Learn three things you should NEVER do when virtualizing SQL Server, three things you should ALWAYS do when using SQL Server on a SAN, and three metrics you should always capture on every SQL Server whether it's virtual or SAN-connected or none of the above.
