Technobabble by Klee from @kleegeek

David Klee is all around geek who loves data - including the platform it resides on, virtualizing it, improving performance, availability, and disaster recoverability, and data presentation and visualization. He frequently advises organizations on the techniques of migrating their business-critical physical SQL Servers to the VMware infrastructure in his day job as Solutions Architect. David speaks at many national SQL Saturday events and SQL Server User Group meetings, as well as writes technical columns on SQL Server and virtualization topics on various blogs. He is on Twitter (https://twitter.com/kleegeek), LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/in/davidaklee), and blogs frequently (http://www.davidklee.net).

How Your DBAs Are Granted VMware vCenter Access

A while back I wrote a blog post at the House of Brick technical blog that details talking points and reasons for why your DBAs need vCenter access when their mission-critical servers have been virtualized. Over the last year, this single post has become quite popular. As a follow up to this post, I have a new post on how to grant the DBAs this particular level of access, as well as ways the DBAs can query the vCenter database directly to start to mine performance statistics. It is located here:

These queries are loosely based on Jonathan Kehayias’s post on querying the VMware vCenter database, located here. Thanks Jon for sharing the knowledge!
