Hello,

We are doing more and more installations of SQL server and I have a question regarding server resource allocation.  I hear from multiple people that certain versions of SQL Server utilize multiple cores/threads but installed on a virtual server, SQL is restricted in some way.  Would someone be able to explain to me if it would be better to install SQL on VM server locally to utilize more resources or if it is ok to install on a VM?

Thanks!

It is completely OK to install on a VM - just make sure enough resources are allocated to the SQL server VM. For example, virtualize 2 processors (each with 4 cores), 32 GB of RAM, e.t.c.
