SQL Server Database Consolidation

The database expansion costs money, not just software licenses. It costs money in maintenance and hardware, and also impacting businesses by indirectly affecting the performance of other applications.

Consolidation can also provide greater operational efficiency. With the case for consolidation this strong, the next step for enterprises is deciding how best to go about it.

Check out my article (ie. SQL Server Database Consolidation) in which I discussed the types of database consolidation, the key steps and the advantages of database consolidation.
