VMware virtualising SQL, self paced course June 24, 2012

I found a self paced online course from VMware for Virtualising SQL, so I’ve signed up for it.

On a lot of the VMware courses we talk about physical to virtual conversions, and a question that gets asked quite a bit is, “What is the best practice for virtualising SQL?” I normally point the delegates to the article on the VMware Website.

I’ve now decided that the next exam for me will be the VCAP-DCD v5, so I went onto mylearn to have a look at the DR course and found this.

Virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server with VMware [V5.X] Customer

Summary:   – Format: Self-Paced

– Length: 3 Hours



This self paced course facilitates the avoidance of the pitfalls commonly encountered when experienced VMware vSphere professionals cross the chasm of Tier-1 SQL Server virtualization.

Objectives: After completing the course, you should be able to:

Describe how to design and implement SQL Server database on VMware.

Describe how to design for uptime and performance.

Discuss how to leverage VMware products and technologies.

Discuss various SQL Server licensing scenarios.

Really appreciate this article, and the blog as a whole. I’ve been looking into vmware courses in relation to career progression and all of this information really helps.

Hopefully after I finish the course I’ll be up for a promotion, the line of business I’m in at the moment is in desperate need of Vmware qualified employees.

Hi Emma

Thanks for the comment, you have the honour of being my first commentor.

Good luck on the course and good luck with the exam, if you can after you pass your VCP, go on the Optimise and Scale course and then you will be preppared to sit your VCAP-DCA.

Kind Regards
