  • 32. Lose the Urge to Merge Stack Instances; Don’t Merge Instances.
    • Merging Instances– Consolidating Databases– is Hard and Risky
      • Security & name collisions must be resolved
      • Application vendors want their databases to be in separate instances
      • Client connection strings must change
    • This Method is Complex, Costly, Time Consuming, Risky, and NOT

  • 33. Stack Instances Instead
    • Stacking Maintains Instance Isolation
      • Non-Disruptive to Applications

  • 34. Big Iron. Big Expense. Big Risk.
    • Expensive:
      • Most expensive way to buy compute capacity
      • Administrators still working off hours
    • Risky
      • Capacity Risk: Instances are still server locked
      • Availability Risk: Downtime effects more instances
    Why sacrifice on price/performance and increase risk?
  • 35. Traditional High Availability Software is Not for Consolidation Don’t get tangled in the SCSI Web
    • Traditional HA solutions use SCSI reservation
      • Controls server-to-storage relationships
      • Introduces brittleness
    • Change Is Disruptive
      • Each change requires downtime on related servers
    • Overwhelming Storage Configuration Complexity
      • Must pre-define all server to storage relationships
      • Every relationship is a source for potential failure
      • Forces isolated storage management
    Why take on the complexity of HA solutions not designed for consolidation?
  • 36. Server Virtualization: Not for Mission Critical Databases
      • Limited IO Performance
      • Lacks Robust High Availability
      • Forces Isolated Storage Management
  • 37. VMware Isn’t The Right Tool for SQL Server
    • Doesn’t Perform for SQL Server
      • High input-output overhead tax
      • CPU limitations
    • Doesn’t Meet Availability Requirements
      • Unplanned
        • Distributed Availability Services is inadequate
      • Planned
        • Vmotion works only if servers are up
    • Doesn’t Decrease Biggest Cost Elements
      • Does not consolidate software images
      • Does not consolidate storage
    • Ironically, IT organizations are increasingly concerned about Virtual Machine sprawl
  • 38.

  • 41. Customer Case Study
    • Goals
      • Reduce number of servers required to provide high availability services for a major government entity
    • Solution
      • PolyServe Database Utility for SQL Server, which eliminates need for passive fail-over servers
    • Results
      • Reduction in server count of up to 85%; the environment currently consists of some 500 SQL servers, but will grow through 2013
    • “ Since consolidating our SQL Server databases with PolyServe, manual build time has been automated from days to hours and failover time has shrunk from five minutes to one; system management is more efficient and we expect to substantially cut overall cost-of-ownership for our SQL deployments.”
    • David Miller Director, Technology & Infrastructure Practice
    Avanade is the leading global technology integrator on the Microsoft platform. Avanade is a joint venture formed by Accenture and Microsoft.
  • 42. Customer Case Study
    • Goals
      • Consolidate and centralize ERP running on SQL Server
      • High availability without the cost of “wasted hardware”
    • Solution
      • PolyServe Database Utility for SQL Server cluster on two-processor IBM BladeCenter servers + 130GB IBM TotalStorage
    • Results
      • Estimated one month of downtime avoided
      • Consolidation of 18 servers to one, driving down costs and maintenance burden
      • Scalability to add new SQL instances and required redundancy quickly and inexpensively
    • “ The PolyServe Database Utility for SQL Server has already helped us immensely.
    • Our focus at Greif is efficiency and consolidation. PolyServe went above and beyond in terms of both support and product. It is a fantastic product.”
    • Jason Reese Network Administrator
    Greif is a world leader in industrial packaging products and services, recording $2.4 billion in sales for 2005.
  • 43. Customer Case Study
    • Goals
      • Roll out prescriptions processing application for nationwide network of outpatient pharmacies.
      • Ensure high availability with minimal impact to server performance.
    • Solution
      • PolyServe Database Utility on 4-way servers + 4TB SAN
      • 12 instances of SQL Server with 18 databases
    • Results
      • Greatly reduced risk to database interruption SLAs. Failovers take 10 to 15 seconds vs. five minutes to two hours
      • Maximized server utilization with built-in high availability
    • “ Initially, we brought PolyServe on board to support our prescription processing databases. We ended up expanding our use of the PolyServe SQL Server Utility and it has proven to be reliable and robust enough for much of our database work. We are looking to leverage PolyServe as much as possible for our current and future projects.”
