Webinar: SQL Server in a Flash

Posted by VIOLIN SYSTEMS on Sep 11, 2014 12:26:51 PM


Increasing the performance of SQL Server workloads remains a hot topic. Given the importance that tabular data plays not only in your organization, but also that of your trading partners, it’s not at all surprising that this remains of considerable interest. Recently, Sumeet and I took the time to articulate the value proposition for using flash storage in an SQL Server environment. If you’d like to learn a bit more, I invite you to watch this webinar:


Redefine what is possible with your SQL database decisions today and into the future with purpose built Windows all-flash arrays that will optimize your SQL Server infrastructure, provide the best of physical, cloud and hybrid cloud environments and help you gain control of your windows business applications, SQL databases and workloads driving today's big data and business SLAs.

In this webinar, you will learn about the benefits of a seamlessly integrated approach to all-flash storage for your Microsoft SQL Server environment. We will discuss the challenges and pitfalls to avoid when selecting performance-based storage with enterprise data services. We will also discuss how to consolidate and optimize your SQL Server instances, optimizing your Hyper-V infrastructure, and planning for SQL Server growth.
