Dragon Slayer Consulting's Marc Staimer to Join DH2i's Don Boxley to Discuss: How to Stop Overpaying Microsoft for SQL Server

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


October 17, 2012 at 8:30 am - 9:30 am PDT / 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT



Microsoft SQL Server 2012 licensing has become increasingly expensive, especially when running as a virtualized instance.  Enterprise edition must be licensed per virtual machine (VM) and per hardware core, with a minimum of four cores per VM.  This can be incredibly expensive.  However, Microsoft licensing allows unlimited instances of SQL Server 2012 to run on the same physical or virtual machine without any additional licensing.  But, creating new instances on a given machine is labor intensive, time-consuming, and instances can't be easily migrated to other resources.  Attendees of this webinar will learn how to leverage application virtualization to simplify and improve application management across physical, virtual and cloud computing environments; resulting in dramatically enhanced performance, productivity, resource utilization and quality of service (QoS), as well as significant cost savings.  If you want to stop overpaying Microsoft for SQL Server – this is the webinar for you!
