EMC Mission Critical Infrastructure for Microsoft SQL Server 2012
This white paper describes how to deploy and implement SQL Server 2012 Availability Groups on the EMC Symmetrix VMAX 10K platform.  It demonstrates the performance improvements of intelligent EMC Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools (FAST VP) technology on EMC Symmetrix VMAX 10K, which automatically promotes hot data to a high-performance Flash virtual pool and demotes cold data to a high-capacity SATA virtual pool.  It also shows the integration of Symmetrix VMAX 10K with VMware vSphere 5 and the ease of maintenance of storage and applications in a virtualized environment.
