SQL Server 2008 Hyper-V Whitepaper

Running SQL Server 2008 in a Hyper-V Environment

Microsoft has released a Technical Article on running SQL Server 2008 in a Hyper-V environment.

As expected, there is a performance impact and "proper hardware sizing is critical to SQL Server performance".

For me, the jury is still out whether it is worth virtualizing SQL Server (using either VMware or Hyper-V), especially Tier-1 SQL Server instances, due to the number of vCPUs that can be allocated to a VM.

So it’s good to see that Microsoft have finally released such an anticipated whitepaper.
