Breaking down barriers to virtualizing mission-critical applications

Authors Matt Liebowitz and Alex Fontana discuss recent advancements in technologies that allow IT administrators to virtualize mission-critical applications such as Microsoft SQL Server.

In many cases, virtualizing these applications is the final step IT shops need to take before they become 100% software-defined.

Watch this video to hear Liebowitz and Fontana discuss the changing attitude around virtualizing mission-critical applications, and how this fits into the software-defined data center future.
