Very Large Databases in your future

Speaker(s)Eric Peterson 

Duration: 60 minutes

Track: 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.
