Presentation: More with Less: Consolidation and Virtualization
Summary: In today's economic times, we are being asked to do more with less and less budget, less hardware and yet our data needs keep growing! How do we keep our database infrastructure humming along given these restrictions? In this session, we talk about different options of consolidation, including database-level consolidation, instance-level consolidation and virtualization. We also discuss some of the tools and methods you can use today to help consolidate your SQL Server environment and do more with less.
