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
