Design, Deploy, and Optimize SQL Server on VMware


Are you desperately searching for faster ways how to run SQL Server on top of VMware vSphere? Do you want to get the best possible SQL Server performance out from your existing VMware vSphere deployment? Are you planning to use SQL Server High Availability Technologies (like Failover Clustering or Availability Groups) in combination with VMware vSphere High Availbility technologies (like vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler, or even Virtual SAN), and you are not really sure to combine then in a good way?
