More and more companies are virtualizing with VMware, and databases are the next logical step. Some companies have attempted to virtualize databases on VMware but went back to physical hardware because of performance issues. There are many reasons this may have happened, but quite often the decision to go back to physical hardware was not based on hard facts. This presentation will explore the fundamentals of monitoring databases in a VMware environment because it can be much different than when running on a physical machine. If you are using classic O/S monitoring tools, you may be getting misleading information. You will learn business and technical benefits of virtualization, master new terms and concepts, pick up useful planning tips and tricks and cover best practices for maintaining optimum performance in a VMware environment.
