Following the series of virtualization posts today I dig up for some papers and articles on database virtualization which is another hot topic that is coming in near future.I found a bunch of good posts and a few papers , but still there is a lack of precise information and clear implementation.I even read some posts where database virtualization was claimed impossible and unpractical.We’ll see what the practice will show with the evolution of virtual environments.Here I will post a few links to papers I find informative and on which I may comment later.
Virtualization – Explaining the different sorts of virtualization (Overview)

Dynamic Load Balancing of Virtualized Database Services Using Hints and Load Forecasting – Database decomposition and service oriented architecture ( Technische Universitat Munchen )
Update: Surprisingly I found that my post is listed on a paper from Sun Microsystems & MySQL & VMWare here! Thanks for promoting my blog!
