Scaling SQL Server 2012

SPEAKER: Glenn Berry, Principal Consultant, SQLskills

SQL Server implementations can rapidly evolve and become more complex, forcing DBAs and developers to think about how they can scale their solution quickly and effectively. Scaling up is relatively easy but can be expensive, while scaling out requires significant engineering time and effort. As your database server nears its load capacity, what can you do?

This 24 Hours of PASS session, a preview of the full-day PASS Summit pre-conference session, will give you concrete, practical advice about how to scale SQL Server. We'll explore how to find and alleviate bottlenecks and cover how you can decide whether you should scale up or scale out your data tier. We'll also cover how to use middle-tier caching and other application techniques to increase your overall scalability.
