Plan to Migrate : Physical Server hosted Data into Virtual Server (PRODUCTION) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I get some Inputs from experts with Migration and Virtualization experience.

    Currently I have 2 Data Centers with Physical PRODUCTION servers.

    1 DC with almost 9 TB of Data . 2 DC with almost 6 TB of Data.

    Currently as part of Server Migration to the latest OS & SQL Versions we are planning for a side by side Data Migration from Physical environment to Virtual environment. Can I get some guidance on below points:


    1. Can I use Virtual Servers for PRODUCTION Servers for both Database and Application Servers ? Please let me know some key points.
    2. How about Hybrid servers (Physical Servers for Database Servers to maintain the mission criticality performance and VMs for Application Servers) . Is this a good plan ? If Yes , what is positives about this ?
    3. What is the Disadvantage if I move the servers from Physical to Virtual (Including Database and Application Servers)
    4. Can I know some performance related points with Virtual Hosts for all DB & App servers.
    5. Please help me understand more about this Migration perspective .
