Two papers that have been the result of some of the work I and the team have been doing over the past couple of months at Nutanix have just been published. The first paper is the SQL Server on Nutanix Tech Note that includes a brief outline of why Nutanix is a great place to run SQL Server, as well as the SQL on Nutanix high level best practices and some performance validation results. This is really a shortened overview of the full SQL on Nutanix Best Practices Paper authored by Steven Poitras. The second paper is the Oracle on Nutanix Solution Brief. This paper is really a quick and brief high level overview of the value Nutanix can bring to customers wanting to run Oracle Databases. I would recommend you get these papers as they are hot off the presses. We will be brining you more content specifically around Oracle Database Best Practices in the very near future, including Oracle RAC, and we have a number of vSphere on Nutanix best practices papers in the works.
While I mention the topic of SQL, the book that I’m writing with Michael Corey and Jeff Szastak – Virtualizing SQL Server with VMware: Doing It Right on behalf of VMware Press is also getting close to the finishing line. This contains what you need to know to successfully virtualize SQL Server, even large scale Monster VM instances. The book is due to be published in August in time for VMworld USA, but you can pre-order it now.
