  • Virtualizing SQL Server: Strategies and Best Practices

    Server consolidation is the top reason companies virtualize systems as companies realized they can reduce their server overhead to save money on power, cooling, space, networking, cables, and even the hardware warranty. In fact, SQL Server(R) virtualization is an expectation today. SolarWinds Head Geek, Kevin Kline, shares strategies and best practices for virtualizing SQL Server to ensure high performance and easier troubleshooting.

  • Why is Database Performance Analyzer a Smart Investment for Your Team?

    As companies move databases into the cloud, addressing performance issues isn’t as easy as it was when everything was on-premises. It is expensive to scale up cloud services to improve performance. A better, more sustainable approach would be to help make sure your workload is tuned, so you’re scaling resources for good reasons—more processing needs of the business, not just supporting inefficiencies.

  • SQL Server Indexing for Performance

    SQL Server performance is critical for business applications to meet internal and external customer needs. Unfortunately, one of the most common SQL Server performance issues is related to missing or incorrect indexes. This situation can cause excessive I/O and CPU overutilization, and it can even lead to additional memory usage. Microsoft® SQL Server® is relatively unique because, as a database engine, it records missing indexes it thinks will help queries.

  • Virtualized Databases: Performance Considerations for DBAs

    This whitepaper explores the virtualization metrics that matter for DBA’s responsible for database performance tuning and optimization. By giving DBAs the right virtualization metrics, they can avoid wasting time trying to figure out if the VM has anything to do with poor database performance.

  • Manage the Multiple Database Journey
