SAN Basics for DBAs
Presenter: Brent Ozar
They keep telling you it's a SQL problem - but how can you prove where the real problem is? Learn the basics about your storage options like RAID 5, RAID 10, solid state drives, and why your biggest bottleneck might be a $5 cable. No storage experience required. This session is for production database administrators who've never looked inside the black box of storage before.
