SQL Server’s broad popularity is in part driven by how easy it is to install, configure, and manage. But that can have a downside too – server sprawl. Consequently, many organizations find that there comes a time when it can be very beneficial to consolidate many smaller or older instances of SQL Servers into a fewer bigger or more powerful servers. Typical benefits range from reduced costs for software licenses and hardware components, but also for reduced management needs and organizational complexity.
Every big and complex project deserves time and attention to planning for optimal outcomes, and a consolidation is no different. In this webinar, your speakers focus on consolidating SQL Server environments across on-premises environments, including topics like:
Times and scenarios where consolidation is most appropriate
How to identify your best consolidation candidates
Tips on consolidation targets, whether that be a single large instance with added databases or multiple instances spread across many virtual machines
Licensing costs and alternatives
Practical tips and tricks when conducting the consolidation
This session will help you advance your skills with managing an unruly and growing environment. By teaching you the major considerations when planning a consolidation project, you face less problems and enjoy a faster and more productive consolidation of your environment with less hardware to manage and even reducing your licensing requirements.
