SQL Server All-in-One Guides:
All-in-One Guides cover all of your SQL Server research needs -- from the learning stage to actual implementation.
SQL Server was created as a powerful database management system (DBMS) that is easy to use, easy to deploy, self maintaining, self tuning and cheaper than the competition. Wonderful attributes for a DBMS to have? Yes, until your company finds itself with way more SQL Servers than an already-overworked DBA can handle.

This e-book, by SQL Server MVP and author Hilary Cotter, will introduce you to the worlds of server and storage consolidation, offering advice to help you ease into the process and work your way toward an efficient consolidated SQL Server environment.
