I’m pleased to announce that I’m launching my next round ofÂ all-day precon training session at the upcomingÂ SQL Saturday in Iowa CityÂ on 6/10/2016 calledÂ ‘The Complete Primer to SQL Server Infrastructure‘.
The focus of the course is to help those new to the enterprise server infrastructure concepts become familiar with the concept and purposes of each layer of the architecture around their databases, and how this knowledge can benefit them as data professionals. Participants will gain exposure to all layers of infrastructure and virtualization underneath SQL Server, from storage all the way through to the SQL Server instance, and will learn how to review and engineer the entire stack with a strong emphasis on SQL Server performance.
The following topics will be addressed during the course:
- Datacenter Fundamentals
- Infrastructure Stack Fundamentals
- Storage and SAN Concepts and Design
- Networking and Interconnect Topologies
- Physical Server Technologies
- The SQL Server Virtual Machine
- High Availability and Disaster Recovery
- Performance Investigation and Tuning of the Entire Stack
A working set of the screens and configuration settings referenced in the session, together with the reference slides and documentation, will be provided to attendees, for strategic reference in working with SQL Server and the infrastructure underneath in their own environments.
I am really happy to be deliveringÂ this precon, and look forward to seeing you all there!Â Reserve your seat at this exciting event at EventBrite here.Â Tickets are available at just $125!
