Stephen Archbold presents on The Weekend Warrior : DBA edition

On August 2nd, Stephen Archbold will present on “The Weekend Warrior :  DBA Edition” to the SQL Server Ireland User Group.

This talk is aimed at giving System Administrators who find themselves babysitting SQL servers a fighting chance of getting a good nights sleep. We cover the basics of how to cover yourself with backups, how the maintenance plan wizard is your Swiss army knife, how to deploy a SQL server in the best way (Anyone with a user database on the C: drive has to drop and give me 20), the SQL Agent and why it’s important, and an introduction to high availability. This talk will be 50% presentation and 50% live demonstrations.
Topics covered are:
New Install
The Maintenance plan Wizard
Index Maintenance
SQL Profiler
SQL Agent
High Availability

Stephen Archbold is a Sys Admin/DBA for 5+ years, and a full time DBA for 5 years now. He is an MCITP in both Database Administration and Database and MCITP in Designing Database Solutions/Developer (MCITP 70-450 and 70-451). He is currently the Lead DBA of a Multi National financial transactions company, operating across 3 sites in the UK and Ireland. He has felt the pain of the transition from Sys Admin to DBA, and now he wants to give back a little bit!
