Like all problems in the database world, there are no hard set answers on whether virtualization is a good idea, but there are some times when virtualizing a SQL Server is the best option and can save money. And then there are times when you'll be shooting yourself in the foot and shouldn't virtualize. By the end of this session, you'll know how to make this decision and how to gather the metrics you need to move forward with virtualization.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-1-how-decide-if-your-database-good-candidate-virtualization" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/session-1-how-decide-if-your-database-good-candidate-virtualization#comments SQL Server Wed, 23 Jul 2014 17:12:00 +0000 19421 at http://sqlmag.com Session 2: Understanding Query Plan Reuse http://sqlmag.com/database-administration/session-2-understanding-query-plan-reuse <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 63 minutes | </p> <p>Reusing a previously compiled query plan is one of the keys to achieving peak performance with a busy SQL Server instance.
