Whatever your interaction with SQL Server is, this session will discuss the reasons why virtualisation is now so prevalent in SQL Server environments. Not only will the benefits be discussed, but also some of the ways that SQL Server can be affected by virtualisation, both good and bad, along with performance optimisations which should be considered for the virtual world.
We're very grateful to Project Envision for sponsoring this meeting. Check out their SQLDoc tool which will comprehensively document your SQL Server environment.
We'll be giving away some licenses for the tool at this event - register now to make sure you don't miss out!
We'll be putting on food for the event, so please do register so we know
numbers. If you then can't make it we'd really appreciate it if you'd
unregister and/or let us know.
When you get to The Briar Rose, go in through the Hotel entrance to the right, up to the 1st floor and follow signs to the conference room. Grab yourself a drink from the bar on your way!
