"SQL Server for virtual machines"

What do you like best?

SQL Server in virtualized environments is a robust memory paging aware product compatible with flexible file systems for better integration.

What do you dislike?

SQL Server 2012 and above are an n-tier path to the cloud but not readily portable to NOSQL environments. XML integration is still poor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Resource utilization. Migration efforts. Virtualization allows our in house data center to manage resources better during low demand hours.
