This week we’ll be joining our partners at Cisco and Microsoft to talk about the migration to SQL Server® 2016 and how to implement a successful, flash-optimized SQL Server platform with reduced operational and management costs.

I’ve asked Rick Speyer, Senior Marketing Manager, Application Relevancy, Cisco Corporate Marketing, to share more about what to expect from this webinar and why we dare you to find a better place for your data! Here’s what he had to say:

“Your mission-critical data needs to be available, protected, and secure. With the launch of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2016, there’s an opportunity to transform your data platform with breakthrough mission-critical capabilities, in-memory performance, and built-in operational analytics. In addition, enhancements to Always On technology deliver world-class high-availability and disaster-recovery solutions.”

Is your infrastructure ready to capitalize on these new enhancements?

Microsoft, Cisco, and SanDisk® have teamed up to demonstrate how SQL Server 2016 installed on the Cisco UCS server platform with SanDisk flash changes time-to-value, advanced analytics, visualized business insights and more – all in an incredibly high-performing, economical, and efficient way.

In our upcoming webinar we will walk you through

  • What’s new in SQL Server 2016
  • Benchmark test results of the combined solution
  • Performance, economic, and manageability benefits
  • A customer case study with Microsoft SQL Server installed on the Cisco UCS server platform with SanDisk flash storage.

With the End of Support for Microsoft SQL 2005 and the support for Microsoft SQL 2008 coming right on its heels, many SQL customers are migrating their platform to the latest version of Microsoft SQL. This also requires an upgrade to their infrastructure to handle the increased functionality of the product.

The Microsoft, Cisco, and SanDisk solution ensures you are implementing a flash-optimized SQL Server platform to achieve maximum performance, greater capacity, and high availability, with reduced operational and management costs.
