SQL Server vs. Oracle: The Throwdown!

Come see David Klee (@kleegeek) and Joe Grant (@dba_jedi) in a “discussion” with a competitive comparison between SQL Server and Oracle in a highly interactive dynamic session. Each database engine has its place in the IT world, and we will discuss which is the right tool for the job. The goal is to be objective and compare features, strengths and weaknesses, and editions. Check your opinions at the door and come join us for an educational session!

Database Health and Performance

Sure, your SQL Server is up and running. Is it healthy? Is it performing the best that it can? Where are your performance bottlenecks? In an emergency, can you objectively demonstrate where a performance problem lies? This dynamic dialog session by David Klee (@kleegeek) will present a solid process for checking your environment’s overall health and performance levels as well as solutions for common problems. Some of the items focused on include dynamic management views (DMVs), Windows Perfmon, and disk performance tools such as IOMeter and SQLIO.
