SQL08_h_rgb WS08-HypeV_h_rgb

 

Last week I posted this video interview with Joe Yong talking about virtualization of SQL Server using Hyper-V.  Today I follow that up with a link to a great white paper that details out things such as system resource overhead that is imposed by running SQL in a Hyper-V environment as well as describing out the various test configurations run by Microsoft.  The best thing that this white paper brings are checklists and recommendations to ensure you are running in the best manner possible.  The document also includes some great performance tuning and monitoring suggestions.  I myself have taken the guidance and used it to build out my demo environment that I use when I present on SQL Server.
