Virtualization and SAN Basics for DBAs 

 
Rated one of the top 10 sessions at the PASS Summit 2010!  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.
 
You’ll learn:
• Three things you should NEVER do when virtualizing SQL Server
• Three things you should ALWAYS do when using SQL on a SAN
• Three metrics you should always capture on virtual & SAN-connected SQL Servers
