Building a SQL Server for Optimal Performance
Gareth Swanepoel, DBA Consultant Pragmatic Works Consulting, Inc.
An "accidental DBA" is a SQL Server administrator who has been thrust into the task without having the complete experience or know how required to keep SQL running at peak performance. This is not their fault and is purely due to the fact that they have not been exposed to it before. If you are a DBA and find yourself wondering how hardware changes affect performance or have questions relating to the performance implications of partitioning or compression, then this session is for you. In this session, I will be exploring topics such as Memory configuration, CPU options, IO considerations, partitioning, compression and database file placement.
Gareth Swanepoel is a sysadmin-turned-SQL Server DBA. He has been working in the IT industry doing support and administration for over 20 years. He enjoys solving the complex problems that his clients encounter when deploying SQL Server in a data warehouse environment. He is an accomplished author and speaker. Current projects include contributing content for the SQL 2012 Extended Events book. He also currently serves as one of the PASS Regional Mentors for Africa & the Middle East.
