You’ve learned a lot of new techniques and concepts at the conference, and you’re excited to go home and try them out. Now what? Most of us don’t have spare servers lying around or test labs in the office that we can use to try new ideas safely and without disrupting others’ work. Virtualization provides a very practical solution to this problem – and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. In this session, we’ll show you how to find the tools you need to create your own virtual test environment for SQL Server on hardware you have lying around, as well as discover that larger test labs for your office do not have to break the bank either.
