Demystifying Database Administration Best Practices [DBA-300-P]

Speakers: Argenis Fernandez, Robert Davis

Duration: 7 hours

Track: Database Administration (DBA)

Being able to evaluate and develop best practices is a critical skill for DBAs. Early in our careers, we followed best practices because people who claimed to know more about SQL Server told us to. Then we realized that for most best practices we found, we could find the opposite advice posted elsewhere. We started evaluating best practices ourselves and began cultivating our own set of best practices.

This workshop is a culmination of what we’ve learned through our experiences, testing, and understanding of how SQL Server operates. We will touch on best practices for all aspects of the DBA realm, from AD configuration to Windows Server deployments to SQL installs with configuration settings galore. We will cover the "why's" behind the best practices, tips to make your daily duties easier, and what to look for in code reviews. And we’ll show you how to evaluate best practices for yourself.
