New Microsoft Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Reference Architecture for Pure Storage FlashArray’s is available. This document provides a reference architecture for deploying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on the Pure Storage FlashArray. This document includes planning recommendations and configuration best practices. This reference architecture has been validated against:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Data Center Edition (64-bit)
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise (64-bit), Service Pack 1
  • Pure Storage FlashArray 420 (FA-420)
  • Purity Operating Environment 4.0.0

Although this reference architecture has been validated against Microsoft SQL Server 2012, previous versions such as SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 are supported.
