The Cost Efficiencies of SQL Server Virtualization

As your need to handle more data grows exponentially, database sprawl becomes a real concern. Adding more and more databases and the applications to support them can quickly tax your budget. That's why virtualization has become a key data center design tactic that can cut costs and simplify the consolidation process.

There are many advantages to virtualizing the SQL Server® environment:

  • Improved availability
  • Simpler disaster recovery
  • Faster provisioning of new servers and storage

Dell servers and storage provide a superior platform for virtual machines and help reduce your total cost of ownership. You can:

  • Centralize administration through data center consolidation
  • Reduce power and cooling costs
  • Achieve greater productivity and performance
