Very Large Databases in your future
Enterprise Database Administration & Deployment
Your databases may not be terabyte-sized yet, but they're probably growing every day. We'll look at lessons learned
from working with multi-terabyte, very large databases (VLDBs) in the real world. Topics include storage layout
decisions, unique tuning challenges, HA/DR implications, and database restores, along with shoehorning backups, re-
indexing and DBCC checks into itty-bitty maintenance windows. As a bonus, many of the techniques also apply to smaller databases and consolidated servers that run hundreds of databases.
