Database Consolidation and SQL Private Clouds
Advances in virtualization/management and hardware technologies have created tremendous opportunities to consolidate data based applications. See how modern architectures can deliver efficient virtual and scalable infrastructure for 100s of DB applications, that can be efficiently, reliably and manageably consolidated. In this presentation we will focus on tuned and balanced architectures that can drive DB deployment and management costs towards $0.
