As of today, virtualization is used in a lot of server rooms. It started with servers like web servers, domain controllers, ftp servers etc. People are getting now more and more experiences with virtualization. Virtualization is getting a common used technology. To deploy SQL Server to a virtualization environment you need to take more things into account. Microsoft has made a whitepaper how you can deploy Microsoft SQL Server 2008 to a virtualization environment using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. It demonstrates that Hyper-V provides the performance and scalability needed to run complex SQL Server workloads in certain scenarios. It also shows how Hyper-V can improve performance when used in conjunction with advanced processor technologies.
