Optimizing VMware Environments for Peak SQL Server Performance VMware configurations designed to provide high availability often make it difficult to achieve satisfactory performance required by mission-critical SQL Server applications. But what if it were possible to have both high availability and high performance without the high cost and complexity normally required? This article explores two requirements for getting both for SQL applications, while reducing capital and operational expenditures. The first is to implement a storage architecture within VMware environments designed for both high availability and high performance; the second involves tuning the high availability (HA) and high performance (HP) HA/HP architecture for peak performance. Building the Foundation with an HA/HP Architecture SQL Server administrators have many options for implementing HA in a... (more)
