Efficiency and Savings with Microsoft SQL Server on VMware
Consolidate SQL Server on vSphere
Virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server on vSphere consolidates databases while optimizing compute resources. Migrate SQL servers in their current state without error-prone application migrations.
Minimize Impact on Applications
Preserve existing SQL Server configurations with a “physical to virtual” (P2V) migration, which doesn’t require application migration or changes to the operating system or SQL Server versions.
Achieve Density on Multicore Servers
Most SQL instances do not require more than eight [PH1] cores. Easily consolidate smaller SQL databases with vSphere to fully utilize large servers and achieve consolidation ratios of 10X or more.
Save Costs with License Consolidation
Once all the physical processors of a host have been licensed, deploy an unlimited number of SQL virtual machines (depending on the edition), consolidating licenses on fewer physical processors.
