The Best Way to Virtualize SQL Server

(So many questions. So little time. Part 17.)

Several weeks ago at our TechNet Event in Saint Louis, Joe F asked me:

“When virtualizing SQL Server I need to know how to best configure SQL and the VM to ensure it will run well.  Where can I find configuration and setup information?”

A quick Bing of “virtualize SQL Server using Hyper-V Best Practices” will net you several good articles and options for finding some answers here.  A few that stand out as being fairly authoritative are:

These resources will give you a good overview of the areas to consider, such as having sufficient processor-power, memory configuration, network configuration (for the VM as well as for storage), and so on.

I hope this helps!

Do you have any recommendations for Joe?  Got any other go-to resources that someone planning the virtualization of SQL Server on Hyper-V should know about?  Please share them in the comments.  If they’re good, I’ll even add them to this blog post.
