Today I was fortunate enough to be able to give a new presentation to the SQL PASS Performance Virtual Chapter called ‘It’s All About the Performance, Right?’ The feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive, and I would like to thank the coordinators and all of the attendees! Your questions were top-notch, and I look forward to continued involvement with this amazing chapter! My primary focus in this phase of my career is data performance, and I am very happy to share what I know. You all are great, and I look forward to giving back to this amazing community!

The presentation was recorded, and I will post the link to the recording here as it becomes available. In the meantime, I have the slide deck for you to download and review. As always, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email me with your questions. It might take me a few days to respond, but I promise that I will respond. Thank you again!

Abstract: Just about anyone can click through a SQL Server installation and get it working. But, it is not running close to efficient, and as the workloads grow, it will only get worse. This session provides valuable details on how to tweak and tune your SQL Server installations to ensure maximum performance, as well as tips on capacity management so you know when you need to add more hardware to take your server to the next level.
