I have a customer who is thinking about Discovery Accelerator as well as the clustered EV solution they want.
They have a VMWARE ESX environment that they would like to use for SQL as they have for some other applications for high availablity etc.
However after reading the DA best practices guide they are a little worried that it may overload and affect the other VMware guests.
I have not had much to to with DA recently, but is it supported to have its SQL databases and DA on the same server?
I am thinking of having the directory and config databases on a virtual server to get the high availability aspect of VMWARE for those and having a separate physical server / blade running DA and its own SQL instance to host the DA databases.
I was thinking about a dual quad core blade with 8 GB memory SAN attached storage and WIndows 2008 x64 on it which should do the job.
Thanks in advance
