A few shows ago, we talked briefly about Virtualization and mentioned it would be a good idea to have a Virtualization expert on the show.
We talk to David about:
- What’s important to know when virtualizing SQL Server
- How to properly size your VM
- What metrics to monitor when virtualizing
- When to use SQL Server High Availability features and when to use them at the virtualization side
- When NOT to virtualize
- Some of David’s most challenging projects
In addition, we talk to David about starting a company and the life of an independent consultant.
David is a technologist that is lucky enough to have a job doing that which he enjoys – working in high technology, using cutting edge technology to make businesses more efficient. He is the Founder and Chief Architect of Heraflux Technologies, and travels around the country working with companies to reduce risk, improve performance, and virtualize their business-critical SQL Server infrastructures.
David regularly contributes to the PASS Virtualization, Performance, and High Availability and Disaster Recovery virtual chapters. David also helps to run and coordinate the Omaha SQL Server Users Group.
David is also a member of the PASS High Availability and Disaster Recovery Virtual Chapter board. The virtual chapter meets the second Tuesday of each month for a one hour technical presentation on high availability and disaster recovery topics.
