Like all problems in the database world, there are no hard set answers on whether virtualization is a good idea, but there are some times when virtualizing a SQL Server is the best option and can even save you some money. And then there are times when you'll be shooting yourself in the foot and shouldn't virtualize. By the end of this session, you'll know how to make this decision and how to gather the metrics you need to move forward with virtualization.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-1-how-decide-if-your-database-good-candidate-virtualization" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-1-how-decide-if-your-database-good-candidate-virtualization#comments Virtualization Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:00 +0000 111571 at http://windowsitpro.com Session 2: Optimizing SQL Server Performance in a Virtual Environment http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-2-optimizing-sql-server-performance-virtual-environment <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 minutes | </p> <p>In this session, we'll look over what you should look at within your virtual environment to ensure you are getting proper performance. This will include how to look for CPU performance issues at the host level. We'll also discuss the Memory Balloon drivers – what they do, how you should configure them, and why. We'll discuss memory sharing technologies, which are built into vSphere and Hyper-V, and how they relate to SQL Server. Then we'll will finish with some storage configuration options.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-2-optimizing-sql-server-performance-virtual-environment" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-2-optimizing-sql-server-performance-virtual-environment#comments Virtualization Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:00 +0000 111581 at http://windowsitpro.com Session 1: Demystifying SharePoint 2013 Search for Administrators http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-1-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 63 minutes | </p> <p>In this session, you will learn key features and improvements in Search in SharePoint 2013.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-1-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-1-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators#comments SharePoint 2013 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:00 +0000 111691 at http://windowsitpro.com Session 3: Using Storage to Increase Database Performance http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-3-using-storage-increase-database-performance <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 minutes | </p> <p>In the final session, we'll look at ways that your storage solution can be configured to increase database performance. Some of the things to consider when selecting the correct RAID level to use will be highlighted, along with a review of how to setup the cache in your storage array or DAS. We'll then look at some of the newer technologies like FLASH Cache to improve the caching abilities of the storage arrays. Finally, you'll learn some of the differences between iSCSI and Fibre Channel and how to use tiered storage from both a performance and finance perspective.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-3-using-storage-increase-database-performance" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/virtualization/session-3-using-storage-increase-database-performance#comments Virtualization Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:00 +0000 111591 at http://windowsitpro.com Session 3: Demystifying SharePoint 2013 Search for Administrators http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-3-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 67 minutes | </p> <p>In this session, you will learn how to improve the SharePoint 2013 Search Center.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-3-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/sharepoint-2013/session-3-demystifying-sharepoint-2013-search-administrators#comments SharePoint 2013 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:00 +0000 111711 at http://windowsitpro.com Session 2: Migrating from ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 to ConfigMgr 2012 R2 http://windowsitpro.com/system-center-2012-r2/session-2-migrating-configmgr-2007-sp2-configmgr-2012-r2 <div class="node-body video-body"><p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 61 minutes | </p> <p>In this session, Johan shows you how to migrate an existing ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 site into ConfigMgr 2012 R2, including collections, applications, updates, and OS deployment resources.
