Top 5 essential topics a database administrator should know to maintain SharePoint databases

At the start of the month, I managed to find a speaker from our own SQL Server Ireland User Group, Vikas Sahni, to present on his experiences with SQL Azure. While I was unable to make the event, the feedback was extremely positive.

While SQL Azure was one of the two hot topic in the group recently , I am delighted to be able to follow Vikas’ SQL Azure presentation with another presentation on Sharepoint. Sharepoint was the other hot topic.

So, this time, Osvaldo Sousa will cover the 5 top essential topics a SQL Server administrator should know to successfully maintain SharePoint databases.

It will cover:

SharePoint Server vs. foundation databases. General considerations

Capacity planning for a SharePoint database servers. IOPS, Network and Memory
