Server Consolidation – things to look for in SQL Server 2008

Posted by decipherinfosys on October 31, 2007

We had talked about virtualization in the database world in a previous post. In SQL Server 2008, there are a lot more features available for doing server consolidation – here is a link to the MSFT whitepaper that breaks this down into the sections of flexibility, manageability and scalability & performance:

If you have downloaded the CTP 4, we would recommend that you get a head start with these features by playing with them in one of your VM environments.  In case you have not upgraded to SQL Server 2005, chances are that you would be upgrading directly to SQL Server 2008 by the end of next year once the product is released and has been tested in real world implementations.
