Event Details

In this session you will learn about SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 performance tuning and optimization. Industry Expert Denny Cherry will guide you through tools and best practices for tuning queries and improving performance within Microsoft SQL Server.  This session will guide you through real life performance problems which have been gathered and tuned using industry standard best practices and real world skills.

This session starts off with reviewing the various native tools which are available to you from Microsoft with your SQL Server License and how all of these tools can be used to help you performance tune your SQL Server installation.  These tools include SQL Profiler, Extended Events, Database Tuning Advisor and more.  We will use these tools to identify problem areas within the SQL Server database engine and how to solve for these problems.

We will look at the new ColumnStore index and how it can be used to improve performance within your data warehouse platforms, including how to use it in a data warehouse which needs to be written to through out the day bypassing the problem of the columnstore index being read only.

We will discuss some scaleout options which are available with Microsoft SQL Server both within the database by using table partitioning to spread the workload to multiple disks, as well as AlwaysOn Availability Groups and how they can be used to scale a database out across multiple servers.
