Understanding the big picture

Preparation is vital to changes in the data center. Successful implementation of a Dell Solution for Microsoft SQL Server means understanding your current environment:

  • Do you know which of your SQL Server instances are consolidation candidates?
  • Is there a need for a scalable backup solution?
