I am proud to announce that we contributed to the latest revision of the Microsoft SQL Server on VMware best practices guide, freely available at this address. This document outlines some of the common VM-level tweaks and adjustments that are made when running enterprise SQL Server VMs on VMware platforms. This guide is considered a must-read if you manage these sorts of SQL Servers, which cannot be treated as general purpose virtual machines.
This guide was recently updated for vSphere 6.5, and we consider it an absolute must for your enterprise management library!
If you manage SQL Server instances on VMware, it’s definitely worth the read.
