- Level Up Your Cloud Infrastructure Skills (David Klee)
Think infrastructure in the cloud is still just for sysadmins? Think again! As your organization moves into the cloud, infrastructure skills are more important than ever for DBAs to master. Expert knowledge of cloud-related infrastructure will help you maintain performance and availability for databases in the cloud. For example, know what an IOP is? How many does your database consume during a given day? Properly sizing a cloud database depends on your knowledge of this metric. Failure to properly configure storage performance at the time of deployment will slow down your SQL Server considerably. Come learn many of the key cloud infrastructure points that you should master as the DBA role continues to evolve in this all-day boot camp on ramping up your knowledge on cloud management!
- Using SQL Server tools to Find Performance Bottlenecks (Dave Bland)
Performance is always at the top of every DBA’s list of things to do. There are many tools that are available that are native to SQL Server. This session will cover how to use Extended Events, DMVs, Execution Plans and QueryStore to find performance bottlenecks. Topics to be covered will include query timeouts, index fragmentation, execution plan warnings, missing indexes, waits, deadlocks, code formatting, baselining, and many others.
