Look Under the Hood: Tuning Microsoft SQL DB for Enhanced Performance Everywhere in the Enterprise
This IDC study is written for CIOs, IT directors, IT managers, and implementers of Microsoft SQL Server. It guides both the business decision manager and the IT practitioner in the logic needed when deciding on the priority of company resources that should be allocated to a robust acquisition and installation of any of the Microsoft System Center components. A long-term strategy to accommodate growth of the System Center suite should be implemented as the Microsoft licensing model for the System Center products lends itself to the cost-effective expansion of the suite in the enterprise. However, the licensing details for the System Center server management license (SML) and the client access license (CAL) and the Client Management Suite Client management license (ML) are not covered in detail in this document."Business decision managers and IT practitioners must avail themselves of Microsoft's generous licensing model and System Center's comprehensive coverage of the management, monitoring, security, and administration of enterprise assets," says Tim Clark, adjunct analyst with IDC's Research Network. "The investment in a robust, secure, and scalable SQL infrastructure can lead to significant project ROI. This payback will be felt in both the IT budget and your IT capabilities."
