Intel® Select Solutions for Microsoft* SQL Server Solution Brief

Database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solutions play an increasingly important role in enterprise data center deployments, where scaling up and down quickly is a high priority. DBaaS offers the technical advantages of accommodating multiple tenants on a wide variety of concurrent workloads in databases ranging from hundreds of megabytes to terabytes in size. It also offers the financial advantages of tighter utilization of infrastructure, with IT paying only for resources actually used. To capitalize on those advantages, IT organizations now seek new approaches to DBaaS that can meet the escalating demands of online transaction processing (OLTP), hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP), and advanced analytics. Intel® Select Solutions are verified hardware and software stacks optimized across compute, storage, and networking resources for specific workloads, such as DBaaS. Built on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel® Select Solutions help ensure enterprises get the performance, agility, and security they require.
