Dell recently introduced PowerEdge VRTX, the first shared infrastructure IT solution designed specifically for remote and small office environments. PowerEdge VRTX provides enterprise-class capabilities in a desk-side, space-saving design and enables customers and partners to experience greater simplicity, realize improved efficiency, and achieve greater value with a pre-configured solution.

Engineers at Dell Solutions group have developed virtualized database solution architectures comprising of Microsoft HyperV and PowerEdge VRTX.

This reference architecture whitepaper discusses the usage of VRTX as the backbone for the enterprise class cloud-ready database platform, Microsoft SQL server 2012. The major use case scenarios discussed are branch/remote office and small business deployments.

Microsoft Data Protection Manager(DPM) is discussed in detail as part of a robust data protection mechanism for database deployments on PowerEdge VRTX.
