Server Virtualization is the process of presenting a logical grouping or subset of computing resources so that they can be accessed in ways that give benefits over the original configuration. This new virtual view of the resources is not restricted by the implementation, geographic location or the physical configuration of underlying resources. Commonly virtualized resources include computing power and data storage.
Virtualization continues to grow at 20 percent or more per year, but it is not expected to overtake existing physical architectures at least through 2010. This white paper examines the unique challenges of virtualization and offers tips for its successful management alongside IT's physical deployments.
High availability solutions are no longer an all or nothing discussion about expensive, proprietary solutions. Today there are wide range of affordable alternatives that provide the required level of availability at a cost justified by the risks of downtime.
Many businesses struggle to guarantee application and data availability for Windows applications. They may protect the application from one type of outage (like a disk failure) while ignoring other risks. Or they can end up deploying multiple point solutions to handle different aspects of availability, increasing overall cost and complexity.
There are many expensive, complex technologies that promise high availability for SQL. Fortunately there are also simple, automated ways to get the highest levels of protection. The following five secrets to affordable SQL availability will help you to implement a SQL environment with little or no downtime, zero data loss, and no added IT complexity.
