VMware vSphere with Tanzu Now Fully Supports SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters.
Since the release of vSphere 7 Update 1c (Dec 17th, 2020), vSphere with Tanzu now supports configurable node storage for Tanzu Kubernetes clusters to mount additional storage volume to the worker nodes. This feature allows vSphere with Tanzu to fully support containerized applications that require a large amount of image size during deployment, for example, SQL Server 2019 big data clusters (BDC).
What is SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters?
SQL Server Big Data Clusters is Microsoft’s newest data platform that allows you to deploy scalable clusters of SQL Server, Spark, and HDFS containers running on Kubernetes. These components are running side by side to enable you to read, write, and process big data from Transact-SQL or Spark, allowing you to easily combine and analyze your high-value relational data with high-volume big data.
Why SQL Server Big Data Clusters on vSphere with Tanzu?
vSphere with Tanzu is the best solution that puts together the virtualization and Kubernetes into the same platform. Customers can still rely on traditional virtualized SQL Server applications to manage their mission-critical OLTP workload, while they are able to migrate certain SQL Server OLAP jobs onto the same vSphere with Tanzu platform, and what’s more, extend the data platform to process multiple external data sources through SQL Server BDC, for example, use SQL BDC to process big data on HDFS for machine learning jobs.
