In essence, virtualization is really just the use of abstraction to make things either easier to manage or more fault-tolerant. Disks, for example, have long been virtualized in the sense that a single, physical, can easily be divided up into multiple logical (or virtual) volumes (or drives) just as easily as a number of discreet physical disks can also be virtualized into a single drive (via RAID) &ndash; which can further be partitioned into volumes, LUNs, and so.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Systems Management SQL Server containers Containers deployment deployment docker docker future future SQL Server SQL Server virtualization virtualization Windows Windows Practical SQL Server Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:54:00 +0000 25731 at What Do We Do to Reduce Complexity in the Next Generation of the Datacenter? <div class="node-body article-body">Over the next 24 months, the use of private/hybrid cloud environments to run SQL Server is projected to grow 82 percent.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Hybrid Cloud Database Performance Tuning Database Virtualization Database Administration datacenter hybrid cloud private cloud virtualization Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:37:00 +0000 21481 at SQL Server Sessions at IT/Dev Connections: Meet and Learn From the Experts <div class="node-body gallery-body">You've heard about IT/Dev Connections and already read about the full-day SQL Server sessions available.
