Back then, there tended to be one server per workload, and IT needed to manage a multitude of servers. This model was eventually replaced by virtualization, and many more server systems were consolidated. In today’s data center, workloads are shifted based on response to workloads, and the degree of server consolidation is higher than ever.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/scaling-success-sql-server-2016/hpe-superdome-x-today-s-modern-data-center" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/scaling-success-sql-server-2016/hpe-superdome-x-today-s-modern-data-center#comments Scaling for Success with SQL Server in 2016 HPE HPE Superdome X Microsoft SQL Server sql server 2016 Tue, 20 Sep 2016 19:58:00 +0000 34001 at http://sqlmag.com New Features in SQL Server 2016 PowerShell http://sqlmag.com/scaling-success-sql-server-2016/new-features-sql-server-2016-powershell <div class="node-body article-body">PowerShell has become an important management option for SQL Server professionals.
