We have say 15 instances of SQL all other different servers all on different sp etc and data all over different servers some data on SAN

And i installed another 2 copies of SQL last week.

Is there a way to just have one copy of SQL...............and virtualize it.......

Anyone in same boat..............and have a better way of doing this....

I can see in a another year it be up to 30

No as aneesh said but you can have link server and replication if you want to centralize data.
