Featured Presentation

Be Your Own SQL SWAT Team

Speaker: Ben DeBow, Founder and CEO Fortified Data

Summary: Imagine you’re the new kid on the block or a consultant who walked onsite for the first time. Your employer may be expecting you to size up your surroundings in mere seconds, determine its status (healthy or armed and dangerous), and then attack the enemy with deadly force. But do you have the knowledge and/or skills to do so? Every DBA must need to know the good, bad, and ugly of his or her environment and configurations for SQL Server. Do you have servers at or exceeding capacity? Are you meeting your availability goals? Do you even know what your inventory of instances, servers, and databases is? Gathering that type of information is more than just a simple one-time health check – it’s a holistic approach to ensure that you not only know current state just today, but can always know what’s going on to prevent or predict issues down the road. This session will provide you with the knowledge to be able to put a plan to assess what’s going on now and build a basis for you to become a proactive, not reactive, DBA.
