SQL Server on Flash – Re-Thinking Best Practices


SQL Server on Flash – Re-Thinking Best Practices

Flash storage is a game changer for virtually every app in which it is used. Whether used locally, for tiered storage, or all-flash arrays, flash is turning what we thought we knew about SQL Server best practices on its head. In this vendor-agnostic presentation, learn how contemporary IT environments are incorporating flash as an integral & vital part of their architecture—bare metal or virtualized. Standardizing on in-server flash is vital for optimizing performance, scalability, costs, reliability, & availability. In this session we'll review fundamental I/O concepts, SQL Server use cases & implementation details for flash, & dispel myths. We'll also demo flash & learn how flash flips the /faster bit & the significant impact flash makes not just in terms of performance, but also best practices. Lastly, we'll document the massive savings in licensing driven by consolidation on flash, savings so substantial that flash often pays for itself.
