Consolidate SQL Server to give ROI and make your life easier

Have you considered consolidation? Should you consolidate on physical or virtualised hardware? Should you use VMWare or Hyper-V? What are the license implications? Should you consolidate the server, instance, or data? Do you need to save money within your SQL Estate? Would you like a more manageable solution for DBA’s?  How will this affect the business?
All of these questions will be addressed as part of a session which will present common questions asked by DBA’s, architects, CTO’s and CFO’s whom all have a say in how your database should be implemented and managed. 
Presented by Dan Stillwell at SQLBits XII

    I am a SQL Server architect and consultant with experience working with some of the largest and most innovative SQL deployments in the world, specializing in deep internal knowledge of SQL Server, core fundamentals of infrastructure, business high availability, disaster recovery, performance tuning & optimisation, best practice, supportability, VLDB, SSRS, SSIS, BI, development, virtualisation, modernization and consolidation.

    I have worked with SQL Server versions 6.5, 7, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014, Azure

    I spent most of my career working for Microsoft with their key premier customers supplying support and consultancy. These customers were across many sectors; however my specialty was within the financial services sector. I was also a Microsoft certified Workshop Plus trainer where I conducted deep level 300- 400 knowledge transfer sessions.

    Most of my work now involves modernization and consolidation projects with a focus on ROI, TCO and the value that SQL Server can bring to not just an IT department but to the business as a whole

    I was a key part of a team that planned and delivered a solution that was awarded with 2012 Worldwide Data Platform Partner of the Year – Finalist, & 2012 UK Partner of the Year – Finalist.

    I architected and built a SQL Server 2012 (AlwaysOn) private cloud/ consolidation solution that was awarded with the ‘2013 Worldwide Data Platform Partner of the Year- Finalist’.

    I still work very closely with Microsoft as one of their key Gold Data Platform Partners where we were chosen to launch SQL Server 2012.
