Microsoft SQL Server is a very popular and widely deployed general purpose database server supported on Windows Server operating systems. Microsoft has consistently invested to ensure that SQL Server provides a comprehensive general purpose database platform that is competitive with Oracle, IBM DB2, and MySQL.

Because SQL Server is such a general purpose database server, applications that use SQL Server have very diverse resource requirements. It is very important that you clearly understand both the specific application requirements across important dimensions (including performance, capacity, headroom, and availability), and the virtualization context (including consolidation, scale-up, and scale-out models) when you deploy SQL Server on VMware Infrastructure.

You can virtualize SQL Server successfully using VMware Infrastructure. The vast majority of SQL Server deployments are good candidates for virtualization and can benefit from improvements offered by a virtualized infrastructure - such as improved management, availability, and scalability - thus reducing overall TCO.
