Topic: Thinking Out of the Box: Manage SQL Server Using Built-in Tools
Date: Thursday, 26th March, 5.00pm-7.00pm
Speaker:

Martin Cairney

Abstract:

It’s often the case that your budget doesn’t stretch far enough for all the great third party tools that help manage your SQL Servers. So, how can the in-built components of SQL Server help you with your daily tasks? Policy Management, Data Collector and Extended Events, all included in both Enterprise and Standard Editions, provide a framework to keep your configurations consistent and give you some insights into the performance of your SQL Server instances. In this session, we will see how to make use of these components to formalize your configuration and track some performance attributes. After this session you’ll be able to build out an effective management and monitoring toolkit using only “out-of-the-box” features.

Speaker Bio:

Martin has over 15 years’ experience in SQL Server technologies. His experience spans both the Database Engine and infrastructure requirements, and Data Warehousing and BI implementations. He's worked across many industry sectors including London’s global financial institutions and both State and Federal Government Departments. He is a SQL Server MVP, MCT and an experienced conference presenter, having presented at PASS Summit, SQLBits, and SQL Saturday events and User Groups around the world.
