How do you set your nontechnical peers at ease so they’ll be comfortable talking to you? How do you build trust and rapport so they’ll listen to your opinions? How do you not come across as a know-it-all, condescending jerk? There are many verbal and nonv
One of your last lines of defense for just about any system is to have a backup in place in case there is a need to recover some or all of your data. This is also true for SQL Server. In this tutorial we will discuss selecting the correct recovery models, what backup options are available, and how to create backups using T-SQL commands and SQL Server Management Studio.
The INFORMATION_SCHEMA views allow you to retrieve metadata about the objects within a database. These views can be found in the master database under Views / System Views and be called from any database in your SQL Server instance. In this tutorial we look at some of these INFORMATION_SCHEMA views and how they can be used.
In this tutorial we will cover some of the common issues with performance such as: deadlocks, blocking, missing and unused indexes, I/O bottlenecks, poor query plans, statistics, wait stats and fragmentation.
Poorly written SQL queries and missing indexes can have a significant impact on SQL Server performance. IDERA’s DB PowerStudio tools can help identify problem SQL and missing indexes, even for third-party applications. IDERA’s Gary Smith will show you how to use DBArtisan and DB Optimizer to obtain index recommendations, query rewrites and hints to make your SQL more efficient.
With SQL Comparison Toolset, analyze and synchronize the structure of SQL Server databases in an intuitive graphical user interface. View differences for database schemas and propagate schema changes from one environment to another. Compare and synchronize tables across servers, databases, and versions to migrate data, copy databases, and audit data. Customize and automate comparison and synchronization operations. Generate ready-to-use synchronization scripts to minimize errors.
In this session, we will go over key performance issues affecting both SQL Server OLTP & OLAP workloads, show how to identify them, and options for correcting them. And while SQL Server has made great strides in improving performance automatically, some fixes are a little less obvious, some fixes require talking to your end users, and sometimes, it’s the data itself that needs to be performance tuned.
A growing number of SQL Server enterprises are stretching beyond on-premises configurations to embrace the cloud and security is an important part of this migration. Attend this webcast to learn how to ensure your environment is secure.
