24 Hours of PASS, Summit Preview Session

I’m proud to announce that I’ve been selected to present a session in this year’s 24 Hours of PASS: Summit Preview webinar series entitled Virtual CPUs: Right to Ludicrous Speed. This session is scheduled for July 20th, 2017, at 03:00 GMT, or July 19th at 11pm Eastern.

These webinar series are a sneak peek at some of the sessions to be presented at this year’s PASS Summit in Seattle the last week of October. These sessions are from world class speakers and authors who we have all been studying under for years, and now you can see them live!

Session abstract: One of the largest points of contention with virtual SQL Servers and the VM administrators is how to configure the CPUs. Experience says more CPUs are better for performance. VM admins say less is better. Third-party vendors say you need all of them (and it doesn’t matter how many your hosts have either). Can over-provisioning virtual machine CPUs speed things up, or does it slow things down? What is the right methodology to determine the correct number of virtual CPUs? How does this configuration align with the physical servers? From sampling and analyzing performance data, to “right-sizing’ your SQL Server virtual machine CPU count, to properly aligning the VM with the physical server NUMA topology, you will gain the understanding of how to properly manage and validate your virtual SQL Server vCPU configuration in this insightful session. Valuable tips and tricks will be shared that you can take back to your virtual SQL Servers and immediately apply to your own environments.

Register today to watch these sessions!
