IDERA sponsored on-demand webinar

Webcast Abstract

Too many servers and not enough time!

SQL Server has so many features and options that managing just one server can be challenging.  Add to that all of the instances of SQL Server in your environment and the addition of new SQL Server instances without notice makes your job as a DBA and/or network administrator that much more difficult.

In this webcast, we'll look at different things that can be done to help manage SQL Server sprawl to keep server and license management under control.  

Some of the items we'll discuss include:

- Server consolidation
- Multi-instanced servers
- Identifying instances/databases that are used most
- Security issues with consolidation
- Ways to find SQL Servers on your network
- Why you should be aware of departmental SQL Servers
- Documentation options for tracking servers
- Creating policies for new servers
- And more...

Join us for this webcast to learn how you can fight SQL Server sprawl.
