Virtualizing SQL Server with VMware
As I look back at my Blog, I realize it?s been over a year since I have been active. It?s not for a lack of things I wanted to share, but a lot has happened.
The company I founded ? Ntirety – was acquired by HOSTING.? Being on the other side of the acquisition at this point, I can tell you it?s been great. To quote the HOSTING Web site, they: ?Build and Operate High-Performance Clouds for Business-Critical Applications.? ?When you add Ntirety?s world-class expertise on Virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Databases, this is a very powerful combination. ?The two companies compliment each other quite well and are able to combined forces to offer the best combination of cloud and database services in the world.
Even as all of this was going on, I was in the process of writing a new book: Virtualizing SQL Server with VMware: Doing IT Right with Jeff Szastak and Michael Webster. This book is now available for pre-order and will be available for purchase at VMworld.
Few the past few years, Jeff and I have been presenting together on Database Virtualization at VMworld to standing room only crowds. VMworld is where I met Michael Webster.We all agreed there was no single place one could go to learn how to virtualize a business critical application like a database. So we combined forces to bring you such a resource. We decided to focus on SQL Server, but many of the lessons learned in this book will benefit you if you are virtualizing business critical applications that also include the likes of SAP, E-Business Suite and Oracle.
Well, the book is going through its final edits as I write this blog and I am excited to finally see a resource available that provides a single ?guide to how to virtualize the most demanding business critical applications.
