As we continue to showcase the value and capabilities of Virtual SAN, I believe it is crucial to provide access to the information VMware’s performance engineering team has gathered around business critical applications and their respective performance benchmarks.
This new white paper focuses on Microsoft SQL Server workload performance on VMware Virtual SAN. The study was performed with the used of the DVD Store benchmark application utilizing Virtual SAN as the storage solution. The tests performed show that VMware vSphere 5.5 with Virtual SAN is an effective storage platform for transactional database workloads like Microsoft SQL Server.
