5 Surprising Lessons Every SQL Server Generalist Has to Learn

Maybe you are an accidental DBA who has recently been assigned responsibility for the SQL Server, on-premises or in the cloud. Maybe you are a generalist who can keep the SQL Server up and running, but don’t know much about how it works. Or maybe you are just starting in your career and want to learn more. Whatever situation applies to you, there are a handful of very important lessons you will have to learn if you administrate a SQL Server. Whether you learn them the easy way, by study or by attending this session, or the hard way, by experiencing these problems first hand, is your choice. 

In the session, noted industry experts Denny Cherry and Kevin Kline will take you through five surprising situations where what you don’t know WILL hurt you. But if you learn these in advance so you are not surprised by them, you will be in control when they eventually occur.  

 We will cover: 

  • How the default settings in Microsoft SQL Server hurt you 
  • Why is security is frequently overlooked but more important than ever 
  • Quick checks that can tell you if your indexes are working properly 
  • How not planning for availability and recovery can hurt the organization 
  • Why preventative maintenance requires extra attention from you 

You'll also see demos and overviews of native features within SQL Server that explain these concepts, as well as free community tools from SentryOne and other providers that can make your job easy and your life better. Join us for this informative session so that you avoid the tough mistakes and know where your hard work will pay off the most!
