This post is about the (lack) of usage of Microsoft SQL Instances or SQL instance consolidation.
In the wild you see a lot networks where there are several (small) SQL servers. And if you want to save costs our keyword should be consolidation.
When should you think about consolidation?
- You have more then 2 SQL Servers in your environment? Oh yes, those nasty SQL Express editions delivered with several software packages. I mean you too.
