Container technologies are capturing the industry headlines right now, but are seen mainly as a solution for Linux test-dev environments.  In reality, container technology can pay big dividends for Microsoft SQL Server (MS-SQL) environments as well.  Join Storage Switzerland's George Crump and DH2i's Carl Berglund for this interactive webinar as they discuss how containers work in MS-SQL environments and detail the top three reasons you should consider containers for your MS-SQL environment:

1. Make any SQL Server instance mobile across any infrastructure

2. Facilitate modernization of infrastructure, operating system (OS), and/or application version

3. Achieve near-zero downtime with simple, flexible management
