Over the last 18 months I have had the good fortune to talk to a lot of Virtualization Infrastructure Administrators on the subject of VMware and databases. One of the things I hear the most is:
“We are 50% virtualized and our goal is to get to 75% this year. To do that, we have to get a handle on our databases.”
While I appreciate the goal, this is easier said than done. You see, I used to be part of the problem.
