Join the Discussion
SolarWinds Head Geek™ and Microsoft MVP, Thomas LaRock, will participate in two separate speaking sessions on September 25 and 26 on how to tune your SQL Server databases for optimal performance and best practices for data protection. “Ensuring system and application uptime is a mission-critical task for today’s database professionals, but all too often it is challenging to determine which configurations are creating a detrimental impact on performance,” said LaRock. “In my session, SQL Server Default Configurations: Helping Good People Make Better Choices, I’ll detail which configurations to use, when to use them, as well as a few easy ways DBAs can track changing configurations to ensure performance and availability remain high.”
- “The Seven Samurai of SQL Server Data Protection:”
- What: SQL Server has features to help protect data from three different attack vectors: data at rest, data in use, and data in motion. In this session, LaRock will outline seven features (the seven Samurai) of SQL Server data protection and how to deploy them with confidence.
- When: Tuesday, September 25, 4:00 p.m. – 4:20 p.m. EDT
- Where: Expo Theater #5
- “SQL Server Default Configurations: Helping Good People Make Better Choices:”
- What: It can be difficult to determine which SQL Server configuration options are better than others, and worse, it can be difficult to know which configurations have been changed, resulting in poor performance. In this session, LaRock will discuss several default configurations data professionals should be using, and how to track when they are changed.
- When: Wednesday, September 26, 1:05 p.m. – 1:25 p.m. EDT
