pass_logo_smI am pleased to be presenting a highly interactive session tomorrow evening that is a full end-to-end setup and management demonstration on SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups for the Omaha SQL Server Users Group.

During our November meeting, we took a quick non-scientific poll of some of the topics that the group wanted to see more of. SQL Server Availability Groups took the top slot, and when asked, attendees had spent a lot of time reading about AGs but few had actually seen them in practice. Let’s fix that! I will be walking through the creation of an Availability Group from start to finish. I will demonstrate how to create them, handle failover and failback of nodes, show how the application connects, and discuss the daily management processes such as scheduled jobs, monitoring, etc.

The Omaha SQL Server Users Group is meeting this Wednesday, March 4th, at 6:00pm, at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, 1919 Aksarben Drive, Omaha NE. Special thanks goes to Modis for sponsoring this event. RSVP today, and bring your questions!

Tonight I had the pleasure of presenting remotely to the Triangle SQL Server Users Group. I presented my session entitled “Squeezing Top Performance from Your Virtualized SQL Server” to a great crowd of eager professionals. Your questions were outstanding and I really appreciate your feedback from the session. Thank you!!

Abstract: Just about anyone can click through a SQL Server installation and get it working, but more than a little  tuning is required to get the most performance out of your servers. Once virtualized, additional tuning can help get even more performance out of that virtual machine. We will discuss valuable details for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V on how to tweak and tune your virtual infrastructure for business-critical virtualized SQL Servers. Tips on configuring your SQL Server installations for maximum performance when virtualized will be covered. We will also present tips on monitoring and capacity management so you know when you need to add more hardware to keep your database servers running at their peak performance.

The slides for tonight’s presentation are available to download here, and the DVDstore are downloadable here. I look forward to presenting to you all again, and hopefully I’ll see you at your next SQL Saturday!
