To virtualize or not to virtualize? When it comes to SQL Server, there sure have been a variety of answers to that question over the years. Come share your thoughts, questions, and experiences in this interactive discussion hosted by Redmond Magazine columnist Don Jones. Don will lay out the “common wisdom” (and rumors and myths) about SQL Server virtualization, and help dispel virtualization misinformation about SQL Server 2008, 2008R2, and 2012. If you’re new to SQL Server, you’ll learn a bit about how SQL Server has technically supported “virtualization” long before vSphere or Hyper-V came on the scene, and about the different options you’ve got for virtualizing SQL Server in a modern environment.
