Delivering More from Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008 with Cisco’s UCS Server Family
Guest Post by Raghunath Nambiar (UCS Performance Architect) and Frank Cicalese (UCS Systems Engineer)
Data’s at the heart of all business applications – whether it be a real-time transaction processing or an enterprise decision support system – we know that data is driving the show.
Microsoft’s SQL Server is the database platform that many enterprises have adopted as it provides a scalable architecture, attractive price points, and supports a multitude of use cases such as OLTP and Data Warehouse configurations as well as providing attractive extensions for Business Intelligence modules.
Over the past several months we’ve seen the Cisco UCS server family support a range of SQL Server use cases resulting in improved performance and cost savings for our customers. The UCS architecture provides key features that can help improve the quality of the SQL Server services you deliver: Our extended memory feature and virtualization capabilities are two areas that help improve database performance and raise your SQL Server consolidation ratios.
We have couple of upcoming webinar on Cisco UCS and Microsoft SQL Server that you should attend. We’ll cover the topics mentioned here and more such as OLTP and Data Warehouse. It’s happening on Tuesday, June 28th @ 7:00am PDT and 10:00am PDT. Registration is at http://www.cisco.com/go/semreg/urls/44768/1
