Install SQL cluster on VMware ESX
Posted on 2008-06-18
Hello, I am investigating virtualising our company infrastructure. The project is moving quite quickly and I need to decide on a strategy for our SQL 2000 cluster. I want to virtualise this but people have heard of nightmarish situations arising. From the documentation I have been reading it seems that I can do it as long as there is not too much processor intensive or disk IO intensive activity.
My question is, can this be done and, if yes, what would be classified as 'high cpu or disk IO utilization'? I need to find some thresholds to compare with that offer solid acceptable throughput ranges.
I hope this question is clear.
