Sanbolic to Present Best Practices for Microsoft SQL Server Consolidation and Ensuring High Availability Across Physical, Virtual and Public Cloud Environments
WALTHAM, Mass., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —
Wednesday, July 11, 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. Eastern Time
Microsoft SQL Server workloads, both physical and virtual, have become increasingly prevalent in enterprise IT infrastructure. And, while server virtualization consolidates SQL instances on fewer physical machines, users have not seen a commensurate reduction in overall costs, due to the complexity and management burden of supporting the storage infrastructure. The reality is that SQL consolidation can actually create more problems than it solves, without a coordinated back-end data store that is aligned with the virtualized SQL server infrastructure. In this webinar, learn how Sanbolic Melio software enables SQL Server consolidation via the central management and protection of an aggregated pool of SQL data. Augmenting and enhancing the underlying storage infrastructure, this shared data management layer is available to all the physical and virtual servers within the infrastructure. Managed in an active-active configuration, Melio also supports failover/migration, load balancing and sharing of SQL instances.

This webinar will discuss how to deploy a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) pilot based on Citrix XenDesktop quickly and easily with lower upfront capital (CapEx) and ongoing operational (OpEx) costs, as well as how to transition seamlessly from pilot to production while introducing the ability to scale the infrastructure dynamically to achieve the greatest return on a VDI investment. Attendees will learn how to combine the unique and extensive capabilities of Sanbolic’s Melio distributed data management software with Provisioning Services (PVS), a core component of XenDesktop, to simplify desktop image and storage management, protect desktop images, improve solution performance and implement active/active or disaster recovery (DR) configurations between geographically dispersed sites. If you’re looking to realize the benefits of VDI on the greatest possible scale without exhausting your resources (time, effort and money), don’t miss this webinar!

Today, even the most sophisticated data centers are facing a quandary regarding how best to address the exponential increase in Microsoft SQL Server deployments and the seemingly inevitable SQL Server sprawl. Many are finding themselves with SQL Server instances spread haphazardly across the enterprise. While virtualization can offer some relief in the form of SQL Server consolidation, it does not address the bigger problem – high availability (HA) solutions are painful and result in significantly underutilized hardware and overwhelming management costs. This webinar will review the causes of SQL Server sprawl and the resulting problems, examine traditional solutions – their benefits and limitations, and then present “Best Practices” strategies for efficiently and cost effectively extending SQL Server agility, high availability, scalability, and performance, while lowering overall costs.
