Webcast Abstract

It's very easy to become overwhelmed by the idea of managing a group of SQL Servers. What may have started as a small group of servers being checked manually every day has become a much more diverse estate with many databases on separate platforms - perhaps on-premises and in the cloud.

The problems that come as the estate grows often start with time. Those manual processes simply take too long and can't be completed without adding more team members, which are tough to find, train and retain.

There are smarter practices for managing database servers. Come to this session to see how one DBA learned from years of mistakes to become a more efficient DBA using smarter best practices, including:

  • Daily Operations - Monitoring, Performance, Failures, Odd Cases and more
  • Maintenance and DBCCs
  • Auditing and Security
  • Cloud Costs and Licensing Review
  • Automation - Data Collection, Alerting and Workflows
  • Alerting - Noise vs. Proactive Notification
  • Performance Monitoring - Norm vs. Anomaly

If your environment is scaling past your work hours, come to this session to learn how to be the Smarter DBA.

Work smarter, not harder.
